They do that by being literally immersed in the language. We try to create an environment where students speak Irish from when they come into school, until they leave, including their extra-curricular activities.

We make sure that all of the students have the right vocabulary tools to access the curriculum. We are also a part of a global family of immersion schools, including, for example, those in Wales, Scotland, New Zealand, the Basque country and in Canada. He is also keen to note research which quantifies the benefits of bilingualism.
The majority of the world is bilingual or multilingual. So, the bilingual children who come to our school are part of the community. But aside from the cognitive benefits and the benefits of any kind of bilingualism, there is a certain advantage to be derived from being Irish-speaking in Ireland. We have a lot to offer aside from just a language. Ua Bruadair highlights indications which identify Irish-medium education as a growth sector in the North.
One of the reasons for this is that it is so small. The Irish Medium sector probably represents three per cent of the school population in the North. There were approximately students who left primary seven in June of this year and around came into primary one in September. The sector is vibrant and we would regard the next period of growth to be one of consolidation. To ensure the future viability of the school, the principal stresses several requirements.
There will be lessons learned from this experience. In the South they have managed to create a system by which small schools are supported. We need all of the subjects on site to ensure that the immersion setting is developed and maintained, in order to flourish properly. That is not to say that there are not immediate and pressing challenges,. There is a legal duty on the Department of Education, under the Good Friday Agreement, to facilitate and encourage Irish Medium education.
There is a statutory duty on the Department to facilitate the growth of our sector. The challenge will concern how best to do that. There will be different challenges stemming from the change of leadership, with a different emphasis. It took five years to get this school opened, but it did get across the line.
There are challenges ahead. However, there are also opportunities going forward. The Irish Medium sector is an open and welcoming sector. This school provides us with an opportunity to engage and cooperate with schools of different traditions, so we can showcase the talents of our students. Indeed, in the 60s and 70s it was thought that raising a child bilingually was going to hold that child back.
Now we have come full circle. Ua Bruadair also concedes that the language has, to some extent, inherited undesirable politicisation. Though he speaks diplomatically on the complex issue. No matter what topic we are talking about, politics is pervasive. The Irish language is no different. It has been perceived to be the realm of one political party and that perception has been the reason behind claims of politicisation.
But is also within the boundaries of possibility that negativity towards the language results in this politicisation as well. There are probably elements on all sides of the political spectrum that have used the Irish language to promote or attack. I am an Irish language speaker and activist.
I was born this way. My father changed his name to Irish when he met my mother and decided to get married and raise their kids through Irish.

Or can you fix the church with its complete saturation of marxism and homosexuality in the clergy? They see religion, the one they chose being Catholicism, as the barrier to liberalism, degeneracy and nihilism. Ok so you think your vacuous church can oppose nihilism get the eucharist in yer hand then leave before mass is over OK so you think your liberalized church can oppose liberalism.
Ok so you think your clergy full of homosexuals can oppose degeneracy. Seems legit. After all we got here after thousands of years of Catholic rule in Europe. Are you going to ascribe this undeserved place as the foundation of civilization to this institution, instead of the people themselves? And are you going to stigmatize materialism so you can keep the soul of the past, which is the soul of a zombie, alive?? Or do you think you will get power somehow and then YOU will never change a thing?
Your view of how we did things in the past, where you only focus on the negative and mischaracterise, can be equally applied to today. You giving out about the attack on materialism is pretty funny to me as well, how it dovetails so well with your view of history, as if before we were in the dark, subject to the whims of selfish elites that used irrational superstitions such as religion to control us, totally unlike today sarcasm. This betrays a mind that has actually failed to understand anything outside of philosophical matierialism, for example idealism.
To me, the only real long-term solution would have to engender a change in how people philosophically interpret the world on a fundamental level, and a near total revival of the national language, each both highly unlikely and near impossible. To think we oh we can just shut the borders and be a bit more conservative is laughable, it is ultimately enlightenment thinking that got us here.
The truth is that gaining wealth, status and glory was their main preoccupation. The Irish were a pro-materialist people. This was meant for the practice of ascetics, not for the everyman. Also we can see that the main concerns of Michael Collins were related to prosperity and economic forwardness. He knew that culture was downstream from economics which is in turn downstream from religion and that the whole edifice needed to be re-created on an unprecedented scale.
He foresaw that prosperity was the only means to achieve a full Gaelic cultural revival. Yet this is our roots! They ignore economics for the most part. Neo-liberal Ireland has cleared the field in this regard. Collins said that economic revival must go hand-in-hand with cultural revival. He specifically mentions these two as central aspects to Gaelic identity: one being the spirit of individual enterprise, and the other, the rejuvenating capacity of our Irish language. He paired these two ideas up to a couple dozen times in his essays.
They were all built on the same foundation the necessity for national freedom… that the people must look to themselves for economic prosperity, and must turn to national culture as a means to national freedom. He contrasted this to state socialism of any kind, whether communistic or ancient Roman, which he disfavours.
He also seems to argue for a limited form of wealth equality or redistribution of one sort or another. The above could be summed up in:. Another interesting point: In his last two essays he determined that it was through economic integration, not armed struggle, that we would regain North-East Ireland.
Failure to do this, he thought, would lead the English reconquering of Ireland, first economically as an initial inroad, and finally, culturally. Hence why he pushed for modernisation and Irish language fluency as an urgent matter. I think his worst fears have been realised at this point. He knew exactly what he was talking about and was right to highlight it. We are far from beaten though.
A tribal-national soul is an incredibly hard thing to extinguish. Franky, with the signing of the Treaty, we had to focus more on economics than on an ill-timed Irish cultural revival. That had to be postponed for later. The priority must be to keeping what you already possess. For example, the USA managed to define their own identity through this economic method, breaking away from the British in cultural sense later on due to their own economic independence.
I think Collins wanted to emulate this to a large degree. But what actually happened was the British always maintained an economic hand over our affairs. It was the British who buttered our bread; the bedrock of our economic activity and funding.
The present nationalist movement is trying to do the same thing, more state socialism, in essence making the same mistake — it will turn out the same way. They pay no mind to economics at all. But the thing is that culture is downstream from economics. Until you can compete with Neo-liberalism intellectually and can learn be innovative with our own economic projects, we will never reach the people.
Economics and materialism should not be bad words in our scene. If he could not do this he was replaced. This is will heavily lean upon new applications using technology and the Internet of Things. I think nationalists should embrace most of these coming changes. The limitless utility and ease of life they will bring to the masses are immense. Most people will be adopting them as a matter of fact, in the same way they quickly adopted smartphones. As a counterbalance we need to focus on eliminating the negative aspects of such 4th industrial generation technologies, i.
Otherwise we might head down the road of the Chinese style statism. One example might be to greenlight a project to move Dublin port further south, perhaps to eastern Wexford, to extend city by building houses for working people on the vacant land. The preliminary studies have already been done, 8, people can be housed here. I would go further and suggest we reclaim land in the Irish Sea.
Many advanced coastal cities are already considering this and we should too. We need these projects as a source of confidence and national pride. We also need them to inject new life into our capital, bringing families into what is at present desolate. Just like Michael Collins, nationalists should be part of a forward looking cultural revolution. We either integrate our unique worldview, using novelty and common sense, or we will disintegrate entirely.
I disagree. To achieve this, cultural revival was key. Yet the latter approach is at the core of the techno-economic world you advocate. A deep sense of self nurtures meaning and purpose. To me they are becoming one and the same thing, each intrinsic to the other, because of how we use technology now. How a person consumes and chooses to spend earnings has become identity in itself. It can be a very intoxicating experience in my opinion.
A rushing in and out of our emotional-psychological equilibrium. In my opinion, this means employing corporative structures, which are now as much about culture community building as they are about enriching shareholders capitalist model. Consumer communities and political affiliations might even qualify as a postmodern pseudo-ethnicities today in my view.
Each speak their own language, symbols, credos, and their own purpose for being. Nationalists should be aware that our brand is far from fleshed out, and is tending towards the fringe. Niches are fine, but in politics you need a hefty minority to play the system. At present most people have no idea of our value system beyond it being esoteric and past-orientated.
I think the barrier for entry into Irish populism is quite high, especially for non-active members. No such barriers exist in other successful political groupings — A simple utterance of a slogan is enough to belong and be active — A huge difference! I appreciate your insights. Ireland needs its intellectuals and people of good sense now more than ever. I actually thought your comment was sarcastic til I reached the end. Yeah Ireland and Gaelic culture was actually always about muh private property rights and the free market.
Jesus fucking Christ man. What kosher big business cuckservatism will do to a brain. Economic markets by catering to the collective whims and desires allow for deep emotional control over a population. Socialism by contrast is far too brutal in achieving the same ends. Markets and industrial innovation are the means by which a people create wealth, at the same time the government focuses on the important task of building myths and stories.
The problem with socialism is the workers never rose up against their oppressors. They were too busy living their lives to to pay attention to such inane pronouncements. The Irish will not rise to your demographic predictions. Marxism has gone too far in the nationalist movement, especially in Ireland.
I have no time for it. Me ne frego. Very interesting article. However , I disagree about the influence of Catholicism. Irish Christianity owes at least as much if not more to the Orthodox Tradition as to Rome. Has loyalty to Rome done Irish Culture any favours? Interesting comment Des. I spoke to an ex-priest recently who was also bemoaning the negative influence of Rome on the Irish Monastic tradition.
Certainly nowadays if only from the number and quality of the YT bloggers who are recent converts to Orthodox, I am left with the impression that these creeds while not without their own problems, are experiencing something of a revival. Do you have any historical references which describe ties to the Orthodox? They are off the top of my head and in no particular order. Saint Patrick is not a RC Saint. However , the Egyptian Coptic Orthodox Church know all about him.
They regard him as one of their own and believe that he was from what is now Lebanon. This explains two things. Latin would have been his third language. There is no reason to think that. He could have been from anywhere in the Empire. The roots of the word Shamrock are neither Gaelic or English but Arabic. Monasteries originated in Egypt and then appeared in Ireland. They were introduced to Europe by Irish missionaries. Hard core Asceticism has appeared in two places in Christianity.
The Skelligs and the Desert Fathers in Egypt. Irish monks did not use the RC Tonsure. The remains of Coptic Churches which were built by Irish missionaries have been found in Scotland and Northern England. There are many instances of Irish Monasteries fighting each other.
Pitched battles , sackings etc. The reason why is never given. Thanks for writing this article. This cultural conversation must be had. Why indeed should we wish to emulate the Americans or British? The historic nations of those countries are in drastic decline culturally and demographically too. I do agree that conservative stiff Catholicism provided the moral backbone for a large part of 20th Century Ireland — which a Marxist state has sought to supplant.
It is much easier however to tear down than to build and all efforts should be focussed on the tearing down of that state — e. Anyone who lived through the early s knows the truth about Ireland! It was a horrible place in time!
With Mental Asylums, Reformatories, Jails and Magdalene homes full to capacity and the tens of thousands taking the boat to England, it was like an Open Air Concentration Camp, with the Roman Catholic priests damning your soul to Hell for eating meat on a Fast Day or for having a Wank! Fuck off you assholes, who never felt raw hunger! Strumpet City! Did you ever hear about it? The novel is an epic, tracing the lives of a dozen characters as they are swept up in the tumultuous events that affected Dublin between and Strumpet City is the impossible Irish novel.
From such material he finds it almost impossible to create a picture of life. After James Joyce, 20th-century Irish fiction was generally defined by strategies for avoiding society. They generally avoided history. Ireland has no Walter Scott, no War and Peace. Plunkett may have learned from both, but he essentially had to invent the Irish epic for himself. I would say that it helps them to see their history and their environment in full colour, rather than in black and white.
It is to cut oneself off from ways of being at home. If we regard self-understanding, imaginative enhancement, cultural diversity and a tolerant political atmosphere as desirable attainments, we should remember that a knowledge of the Irish language is an essential element in their realisation.
They do that by being literally immersed in the language.
