100 Years of An Fáinne; 1916-2016Piaras B
‘An Fáinne’ was started over 100 years ago on 17 February 1916, a special sign that a person was willing to speak Irish. Members of Conradh na Gaeilge founded An Fáinne to encourage the speaking of Irish to other Irish speakers. Piaras Béaslaí was elected president of the Comhairle an Fháinne at the time.
