The Líofa 2015 Challenge
As Minister for Culture, one of my priorities in office is the promotion of Gaelic language and culture to as wide an audience as possible.
I believe that the rich cultural and linguistic heritage on this island is something that we all share and something that we can all embrace and enjoy.
Therefore, I intend to introduce measures aimed at broadening the appeal of the Irish language and returning it to a status where it can be practiced and enjoyed by people of all backgrounds and traditions.
The Liofa 2015 project aims to encourage 5000 people from all walks of life across the North to sign up to becoming fluent in Irish by 2015.
This is obviously a challenging target and will require a significant degree of commitment from the participants involved but I am greatly encouraged by the discussions I have already had with stakeholders from across the community and I firmly believe this is a realistic goal.

Minister of Culture Arts and Leisure
