EU Project Experience

Some experience

We have been involved as a partner organisation to some Erasmus+ projects in the past.

EU Funding Goals

We would like to look towards EU Funding opportunities to support the community work we do around the country.

We also carry out work in advocacy, youth, reconciliation and promotion. We can link with other countries with minority languages or cultural opportunities.

We hope over time to open our language, and opportunities to use our language to more people and more communities over time, fostering a grá for our national tongue.


As a national organisation with 200 community branches around the country, we can offer countless opportunities.

As the democratic forum for our national language, we have expertise in every aspect of our language and plans on how to promote and protect it.

We have strong links with schools through our youth projects, third level societies and run various projects from a bookshop, an information website, national festivals, a radio station and reconciliation projects.
