Language Planning Areas

The Minister for Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht has identified 26 Gaeltacht Language Planning Areas (LPT) for the purposes of the Act. Under the Act, the existing Gaeltacht will be redesignated as LPTs providing that language plans have been agreed with the communities in the various areas in accordance with the prescribed language planning criteria. Under the Act, Údarás na Gaeltachta are responsible for supporting organisations as they prepare language plans in LPTs, and when they put these plans into effect.
