Aitheantas means recognition in Irish and four national Irish-language organisations - Comhluadar, Conradh na Gaeilge, Foras Pátrúnachta na Scoileanna Lán-Ghaeilge and Glór na nGael - came together in 2010 under the joint umbrella-campaign entitled Aitheantas to lobby for the recognition of Irish-medium schools, and in particular to support the parents that founded Gaelscoil Ráth Tó in Ratoath, Co. Meath when the all-Irish primary school was refused recognition in 2010.
Erris is a small barony in northwestern Mayo, much of which is mountainous blanket bog. Béal an Mhuirthead is the main town in the area and the Mullet Peninsula is an Irish-speaking Gaeltacht area bound by wild Atlantic beauty on both sides. Tionól Gaeltachta Chonradh na Gaeilge 2014 is heading on holidays to the beautiful beaches and ancient backroads of Erris from 3 - 6 July this year. The likes of Blacksod Bay and Elly Bay are renowned for their local beauty, and language learners and fluent Irish speakers alike are welcome to relax by the bay with us on this special Gaeltacht holiday.
