Conradh na Gaeilge at Third Level

What’s in a Cumann Gaelach?

Cumainn Gaelacha, or Irish language societies, have been active in colleges and universities around Ireland for well over a hundred years. At their most basic level, they are groups of students who come together to create Irish speaking communities around them. They promiote the language and Gaelic culture by organising both social and academic events for the members of their societies, as well as the broader communities around them. 

The name ‘Cumann Gaelach’ is often used by these societies, and ‘Cuallacht’ is also used in some places. There are some colleges where societies work with specific activities through Irish, such as Cumainn Drámaíochta or Drama Societies. 

How can I take part?

You can sign up to your college society during Freshers’ Week, or by contacting them on social media or email. Contact details for all currently active societies can be found at the end of this page. 

If there isn’t a society active in your college or university, why not start one? Let us know and we’ll be happy to help in any way we can to get a new society up and running on your campus.

Traenáil na gCumann is na nOifigeach Gaeilge

Traenáil na gCumann is na nOifigeach Gaeilge took place Friday and Saturday, 4-5 October 2019 on the Aungier Street Campus of TU Dublin. 

The training weekend provides society committee members and SU Irish language officers with the skills and information needed to perform their roles to the best of their abilities in the coming year. It is important too as it provides students from different colleges with the opportunity to meet and get to know one another, and to come up with and work together on plans for collaboration for the year ahead.
