    ‘Fís Ghaeilge Mheiriceá Thuaidh’: NY, 16-18 May 2008

    By Noreen Bowden | May 13, 2008

    Glór na nGael is organising a conference in New York aimed at developing a vision for the growth of the Irish language in North America. It will be attended by Irish-language speakers from the US and Canada, as well as from Ireland.   There will be panels on such topics as “Irish support to American groups”, “Developing the Irish language vision in North America”, “Support from the Department of Community, Rural and Gaeltacht Affairs”, and “Local, National and International – Working Together”.

    Organisers say:

    Fís Gaeilge Mheiriceá Thuaidh is a unique opportunity to meet with people involved with Irish language events. It will also allow people to learn about language planning and funding.

    Fís Gaeilge Mheiriceá Thuaidh intends to give Irish associations, in America and Canada a stage to dicuss their future regarding the promotion of the Irish language in North America with voluntary and state organisations from Ireland. One of issues that this conference aims to raise is the establishment a central office in North America for Irish language matters.

    The conference will be held in the Affinity Hotel on the 16-18 May.
