IF our mind was to be called after a County, what County would it be called after? Answer:  Cork Why? Because Cork is known as The Rebel County and have no doubt that our mind by its very nature is a rebel. Do you know that over 80% of our […]

Trá Lí le Gaeilge
Public Event, Friday November 15th, when the Public Advisory Process of the Tralee Language Plan, with Minister of State for the Gaeltacht Seán Kyne, T.D. was launched.
Trá Lí le Gaeilge hosted a very pleasant event in Gaelcholáiste Chiarraí on Friday November 15th, informing the Tralee public about the process involved in putting together the Tralee Language Plan. We are hoping, after this event, that everyone in Tralee will take part in the development of the Language Plan, not only Irish speakers, but speakers of English and other languages also!
Background
Tralee has been named as a Gaeltacht Service Town, resulting in funding being made available by the Department of the Gaeltacht and Foras na Gaeilge for the development of a Tralee Language Plan. The aim of the Language Plan is to add to the use of Irish in the home, in the community, in the education system, in the business sector and in the public sector. The Kerry Education and Training Board were appointed as the primary organisation in developing the Language Plan, at a public meeting last year. We are working with an Advisory Committee, with representatives from a wide range of organisations and groups in Tralee.
The Public Consultation Process
As outlined at the event on Friday 15th November, we will be working with the people of Tralee, from now until February 2020, gathering opinions and suggestions, and carrying out research on questions regarding the use of Irish in Tralee. We will be focusing on the following areas:
1.	Education
2.	Young People
3.	Sport
4.	The Business Sector
5.	Public Services
6.	The Arts
7.	The Community

We hope to include measures in the Plan which fulfil our three primary aims: (i) create opportunities for people to improve their Irish language ability; (ii) create opportunities for people with Irish to use it in their daily lives and; (iii) increase the visibility of Irish in the town.
We are very grateful to Minister Seán Kyne T.D. for having joined us for this event on Friday November 15th, and to the Department of the Gaeltacht and Foras na Gaeilge for funding the Plan. The Minister explained the various ways in which the state is supporting language planning efforts both in Gaeltacht areas and outside the Gaeltacht. He stated that he was delighted that Kerry ETB was leading this project that he hopes everyone can get involved in promoting and using Irish in Tralee. 
Additional information on the Tralee Language Plan is available at www.tralilegaeilge.ie and from Aoife Ní Chonchúir at anic@kerryetb.ie. Follow us on social media, on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook. END
