Dúiche Sheoigheach & Tuar Mhic Éadaigh

This Gaeltacht Language Planning Area (LPT) is on the border between Galway and Mayo. This beautiful, hilly area is connected with Loch Corrib and Loch Measca, and is surrounded by districts that are not in the Gaeltacht, but that come to Dúiche Sheoigheach & Tuar Mhic Éadaigh for business and services: Conga, Baile an Róba, Cathair na Mairt, Caisleán an Bharraigh, Uachtar Ard and an Clochán.

According to the 2016 Census, 3,185 people lived in this LPT, and 13.8% of this population over 3 years of age spoke Irish on a daily basis.
