About Us

Welcome to the website for the North American Gaeltacht (Gaeltacht Thuaisceart on Oileáin Úir). Our mother organization, Cumann na Gaeltachta, was founded by Séamus Mac Concharraige in 1994. Our Gaeltacht site, in Tamworth/Erinsville, Ontario, was opened officially on 16 June 2007.

What is the Gaeltacht?

The Gaeltacht is the collective whole of those areas in which Irish is spoken as a community language, and in which the culture and traditions of the language are very much alive and thriving.

What is Our Aim? 

The Aim of Cumann na Gaeltachta is to establish and maintain a Gaeltacht in North America.

General Objectives of the Gaeltacht
