Conradh na Gaeilge and CAJ launch new research into Irish Medium Education at Comhdháil Chomhairle na Gaelscolaíochta Friday 30 September 2022
Budget: Conradh na Gaeilge has welcomed the additional €8.5m in Budget 2023 for the Irish language and the Gaeltacht and the additional €7.3m for TG4
But the organisation is concerned that additional funding has not been allocated to the Údarás na Gaeltachta Capital Fund and that the value of this fund to create jobs in the Gaeltacht is, therefore, down 30%

#SEAS22 - Fairness in investment in the Gaeltacht and the Irish language being sought in Budget 2023
The Irish language and Gaeltacht calls for investment from Budget 2023 will be discussed with politicians today and tomorrow as part of Conradh na Gaeilge’s annual lobbying event #SEAS22. In addition, their support will be sought for a policy for the Irish in the education system from pre-school to third level and a National Policy for Housing Planning in the Gaeltacht.

This is a decision that has no educational basis and for which concern has been raised within the Department of Education itself as evidenced by information that has emerged through a recent freedom of information request.
