Irish in Business

Údarás na Gaeltachta offers a range of supports to its client companies to assist them to put in place a language promotion programme that helps to positively influence language behaviour within the companies.

A Language Officer is available in each local area to assist companies in the preparation of a language plan, to give guidance and advice, and provide information on relevant services. Assistance is also available to provide Irish language courses for management/staff, and some translation works.

Údarás na Gaeltachta has also compiled a Business in Irish /Gnó le Gaeilge guide to encourage and help companies to increase and consolidate the use of Irish in the workplace, implement a language development plan in the workplace and focus on issues such as:

  • Written communication
  • Corporate image
  • Signage
  • Advertising and marketing
  • Spoken communication
  • Recruitment and training
  • Translation services
  • Website development

Additional facilities and information regarding the use of the Irish language in business available here.
