Pobail Ghaeilge: A Brand New Documentary Series on Raidió na Life

A new documentary series, ‘Pobail Ghaeilge’ will  begin on Raidió na Life 106.4FM on Christmas Day, 25th December ag 2.00pm and will be broadcast at the same time every day during Christmas week. The series will be broadcast again in the new year, beginning on Friday 5th January 2018 at 7.00pm and continuing on a weekly basis. The final episode will be broadcast on Friday 2nd February 2018.

In this series, the presenter Peadar Ó Caomhánaigh travels around the country to report on some of the non-Gaeltacht communities where efforts are being made to promote the Irish language.  As co-founder of the Pop Up Gaeltacht, Peadar will be examining the identity and inspiration of new Irish language communities in Carn Toghar in Derry; Carlow; Ennis in County Clare and Loughrea in Galway, as well as looking at his own community; Clondalkin in Dublin. Along with linguistic analysis by Dr John Walsh, this programme aims to understand the role that new speakers can play in the language movement, as we ask the question; is it possible to create a real Irish language community outside the Gaeltacht?

This programme was made with the support of the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland’s Sound & Vision funding scheme and Glór na nGael.
