Irish language under threat in Glencolmcille Oideas Gael's Language Director Liam Ó Cuinneagain is concerned that the Gaeltacht status of Glencolmcille could be under threat unless more of a community effort is made to use Irish as a daily language. They found that less than 50% of people in Glencolmcille rate themselves as fluent in Irish and only around 20% speak it every day.
My wife and I spent three wonderful weeks at Glencolmcille and were well served by Liam, Siobhan and the staff there.
