Decline of Irish as spoken language ‘worse than previously thought’

The decline of the Irish language in the Gaeltacht is worse than previously thought, according to a new report.

The study, commissioned by Údarás na Gaeltachta, maintains that Irish will no longer be the most frequently spoken language in any Gaeltacht community by 2025.

According to the research shows that Irish is spoken by 67% or more of the population on a daily basis in just 21 of the 155 electoral divisions in the Gaeltacht.
