Leabhrán na Ceathrún Gaeltachta gaeltachtquarterbooklet

“I bhfad siar a tharla ann Béal Feirste, seandún a stiúir
áth ar abhainn an Lagáin. Uaidh sin a ainmníodh an
baile, Béal Feirste, “béal átha na feirste”


Belfast dates back to an ancient fort which once
controlled the ford across the river Lagan. In fact the
name of the city is derived from the Gaelic Béal Feirste
roughly translated as “the mouth of the sandbank””

“The Irish Language is a shared heritage for
everyone who is born on the island of Ireland. We
now have an opportunity, with the establishment
of the Gaeltacht Quarter in West Belfast, to tap into
the creative potential of this rich resource for the
benefit of this rich resource for the benefit of all
the citizens of Belfast. Let us seize this
opportunity.”

Ón Luaith go dtí an hAisling / From Ashes to Aisling

The story of  how Belfast Irish speakers led the rebuilding of homes destroyed in the pogroms of August 1969:


“The rebuilding of Bombay street is not primarily about houses.  It is about people. At one level this publication is about witness, a gesture of respect for all of those people who were touched by what began as a criminal tragedy and ended with a triumph for community activism. At another level it is a reminder that we, of our generation, have a responsibility and capability of following their example. This booklet is born out of a desire to not only record and recognise the past but also to recover and preserve it. The same strategies of self-help and community belief that existed then are those which drive community-initiated and community-implemented regeneration now.”
