Evolving approaches to territorial development – the experience of the Iveragh Gaeltacht in County Kerry, Ireland

Summary

Successive governments in Ireland have been seeking to underpin Irish or Gaeilge across the State since independence. As we mark the centenary of independence, however, Gaeilge, which has a very extensive lexicon and important cultural significance, remains vulnerable. In this briefing, we look at a recent innovative example of a local community, Iveragh which is primarily Irish speaking, taking responsibility for regenerating the language in its own area, working with Kerry County Council and others to achieve this renewal over the coming years.
