There is an ever-increasing awareness of the Gaeltacht’s culture and heritage. The language has played a very important role in the continuation of the Gaeltacht’s unique culture and heritage, and the spoken language contains the collective memory of a community and its way of life.

Ealaín

Áras Éanna

Údarás na Gaeltachta and the Arts Council have set out a strategic framework for the development of arts in the Gaeltacht. Both organisations, jointly fund a broad spectrum of traditional and contemporary arts initiatives and projects through a subsidiary company called Ealaín na Gaeltachta.

Ealaín na Gaeltachta employs three regional arts facilitators who implement the arts programme. For further information regarding this programme log on to Ealaín na Gaeltachta’s site www.ealain.ie or contact your local Arts Officer.
