Taoiseach Leo Varadkar launches Bliain na Gaeilge 2018

An Taoiseach Leo Varadkar has launched Bliain na Gaeilge 2018 with Minister of State for the Irish Language, the Gaeltacht and the Islands, Joe McHugh.

2018 marks the 125th anniversary of the language revival movement by Conradh na Gaeilge and is seen as a timely initiative to celebrate An Ghaeilge nationally and internationally.

An Taoiseach Leo Varadkar said this year will provide an opportunity to improve fluency, learn more about the language and embrace it in everyday life.

There are two Gaeltacht regions in Kerry, Corca Dhuibhne in the west and Uíbh Ráthach in the south.
