Dar le Cathaoirleach an ghrúpa, Orla Fitzsimons, ‘Is grúpa deonach de dhíograiseoirí teanga muid ag iarraidh ar gcuid a dhéanamh ar son athbheochán na Gaeilge. Fuair muid spreagadh ón illiomad grúpa eile atá ag feidhmiú ar an talamh ag cur imeachtaí, ranganna agus scéimeanna teanga eagsúla ar fáil don phobal. Thosaigh muid le seachtain na Gaeilge le clár pacáilte d’imeachtaí, ina measc bhí cumannn bricfeasta,  trath na gcéist, léacht fá stair na Gaeilge, siúlóidí sleibhe agus neart eile. D’éirigh go geal leis na himeachtaí agus creideann muid go mór gurb é tús maith leath na hoibre. Tá neart tógraí eile beartaithe againn don samhradh chomh maith agus tá muid ag dúill le tuilleadh díograiseoirí a mhealladh i dtreo na hoibre seo. Tá muid fíorbhuíoch do Chumann Lámh Dhearg agus Forbairt Feirste as an tacaíocht ar fad a thug siad dúinn leis an tógra seo’.

Irish language revivalist work is spreading and strengthening throughout the city with the arrival of Glór an Ghleanna on the scene. Active in Upper Andersonstown and Hannahstown and working in partnership with Cumann Lámh Dhearg CLG, the new group has just recently organised a packed programme of events during ‘Irish language week’.


According to group chairperson, Orla Fitzsimons, ‘We are voluntary group of Irish language activists who are trying to do our bit for the language revival. We gained inspiration from a range of local groups that are working on the ground providing events, classes, and various language initiatives for the community. We began with Irish language week with a packed programme of events including breakfast clubs, a quiz, a lecture on the history of the language, mountain walks and much more. The events were a big success and we are strong believers in the saying that a job well started is a job half finished. We’re planning  a lot more projects for the summer and we hope to attract more activists to this type of work. We are very gratful to Lámh Dhearg CLG and Forbairt Feirste for the support they gave with this initiative.’


Speaking on this new development, Forbairt Feirste project worker, Feargal Mac Ionnrachtaigh stated, ‘Forbairt Feirste are delighted that Glór an Ghleanna have come into the revival movement with strong roots at a local level while also consolidating links the GAA as well. Groups like this are centrally important to the effrots of strengthening the Irish language revival in the community and bringing a network of dedicated activists together to provide a wide range of events. Glór an Ghleanna are due a big congratulations for organising a fantastic programme during Irish langauge week and Forbairt Feirste is only glad to provide support for such inspirational work.’
