What is Gaeltacht X?
Gaeltacht X is aimed an teenagers who would like to see and to use the Irish language on social media this summer. Gaeltacht X caters for those who are from the Gaeltacht, who attended Gaeltacht colleges and all those with an interested in Irish.
Gaeltacht X aims to inspire the spirit of coláistí samhraidh and to provide an immersive Irish language experience without the feeling of being in a classroom. We’ll have games, competitions and content of all kinds this summer to keep young people entertained.
Gaeltacht X shares with young people information about language rights, places they can use Irish, how to normalise using Irish among friends and family and plenty more.
We have a team of four to be the face of Gaeltacht X, to make the experience with Irish more personal, and to present events, interviews and competitions to the public. Síomha, Darragh, Chris and Róisín can be seen on the Gaeltacht X stories a day every week as well as on the IG and TikTok grids, showing the world what they and Gaeltacht X are up to on a daily basis.
