Is iontach agus sláintiúil an rud é rudaí a bheith idir chamánaibh againn i gcónaí agus leis an saothar ealaíne is déanaí ag Coláiste Feirste is féidir sin a dhéanamh go fisiciúl agus ó thaobh na fealsúnachta de.
It is wonderful and it is healthy to continual keep ideas and concepts under discussion and with the latest artwork at Coláiste Feirste we can do that both physically and metaphorically because the artwork entitled Idir Chamánaibh meaning literally between hurls also has the meaning of engaging in robust debate.

Bhí dhá chinnlíne a tháinig amach as an taighde a dhéanann fís cheannródaithe Ghaeltacht Feirste a fhíorú más rud é go raibh fíorú a dhíth agus sin iad go bhfuil 72% den na hiardhaltaí i ndiaidh céim tríú leibhéal a bhaint amach agus go bhfuil an Ghaeilge in úsáid go laethúil ag 94% acu.

Research published today 10/5/18 on the experience of former pupils of Irish Medium Education in Belfast since the 1970s until today will have given a huge boost of confidence to Irish speakers and to those sympathetic to the language.Two headlines stood out in this comprehensive report which will have validated the vision and faith of the pioneers of Belfast’s Gaeltacht, if such validation was required and they were that 72% of the past pupils had achieved third level qualifications and that 94% were using Irish in their daily lives.

“Mar chuid de mhórphlean Spórtlann na hÉireann tá tríantán tallaimh a choinníodh siar le haistriú go Forbairt Feirste. Tá Tríantán Ard na bhFeá aitheanta againn mar an suíomh ina mbeidh an chéad tosaíocht eile sa Spórtlann le forbairt . Is fíor theist litmeas é aistriú agus forbairt Triantán Ard na bhFeá ar cé acu go bhfuil nó nach bhfuil tacaíocht comhtháiteach ag Comhairle Bhéal Feirste do Phobal na Gaeilge.

As part of the overall Spórtlann masterplan a triangle of land in the Beechmount Site has been retained for transfer to Forbairt Feirste. This land, Tríantán Ard na bhFeá, which the council has a long-standing commitment to transfer to Forbairt, has been identified as a suitable location for the next phase in the regeneration through exploiting the tourism potential of Irish language and culture. We are also committed to seeing the development of housing for Irish speaking families. What happens in relation to this part of the development is a real litmus test of whether the Irish Language community is supported coherently in the City.
