Dates for Tóstal na Gaeilge 2013 announced

November 28, 2012

The biggest Irish language conference of the year will take place on February 16th 2013 in the Hilton Hotel, Charlemont Place, Dublin 2.

The event will bring together Irish language speakers, activists and supporters of the language to discuss challenges as well as opportunities to develop the language in 2013. All are welcome to attend the event as headsets will be available to those who don’t have fluent Irish.

Tóstal na Gaeilge is a conference organised by Comhdháil Náisiúnta na Gaeilge, an organisation which represents the interests of 24 Irish language organisations, and it is hoped that this year’s Tóstal will provoke lively discussion and provide Irish speakers with the opportunity to share their views on the promotion of Irish and Government policy in matters concerning the language.

Recent developments such as the enactment of the Gaeltacht Act 2012 as well as progress in implementing the 20 Year Strategy for the Irish language shall be the focus of events on the day as well as discussions and debate on other areas of Irish language policy within the Gaeltacht, language promotion within the family and challenges posed by the technological age.

An Chomhdháil will celebrate its 70th anniversary since it was first founded in 1943 and the 2013 Tóstal will commemorate the work of its members and the Irish language voluntary sector .

A full programme of events will be announced on Gaelport.com over the coming weeks and on social networks under the hashtag #Tnag13.
