What is a ‘Gaelbhratach’?


Gaelbhratach is a scheme which supports schools in their efforts to promote the Irish language. The primary aim of the scheme is to create and encourage a culture of speaking Irish informally within the school community and beyond.

Schools are awarded the Gaelbhratach upon successful completion of a variety of targets. The targets relate to music, art, sport, the organisation of and participation in events and much more.

Drumraney N.S. is currently in its first year of the Gaelbhratach scheme. Provided that we meet all our targets, a certificate will be awarded at the end of Year 1. We can then proceed to Year 2 of the Scheme, at the end of which a ‘Gaelbhratach’ may be awarded to the school.
