Beartas Úr na nGael
112 pp: paperback; ISBN: 9781911363002
This collection of four essays examines the circumstances of the Gaeltacht and the Irish language in the 20th century. Given the current crisis in the Gaeltacht, the authors propose radical measures to enhance Gaeltacht and Irish sustainability.
It is clear that the status quo is not working for the Gaeltacht and an alternative approach is set out in this book. The four central initiatives proposed are: Irish linguistic zones; Community Trusts for the Gaels; Assembly for the Gaels; Academy for the Gaels. The innovative analysis and proposals in the book set out a positive and optimistic agenda for the Gaelic community.
