The Fáilte Online Project

The main objective of the project is to develop online courses in Irish language and culture for ab initio learners from across the globe.

We also aim to:

  • Develop a full online degree programme in due course
  • Encourage learners to visit Ireland and, in particular, the Gaeltachtaí
  • Collaborate with other international institutions

Project partners:

The Department of Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht, with support from the National Lottery, co-funds this project under the 20 Year Strategy for Irish 2010–2030.

Assist Us

We want to ensure that we are providing the best course experience to the Fáilte ar Líne learners.

To this end we will run a specific version of the Irish 101 course in the Spring.

We are looking for learners (beginners) who are interested in helping us to achieve this.

Please contact Elaine Beirne, our researcher, below if you want further information.
