Sinn Féin Gaeltacht scholarship programme to run for second year – Reilly announces

Sinn Féin MLA Aisling Reilly has encouraged people to apply for the second year of Sinn Féin’s scholarship programme to help young people to study at the Gaeltacht.

The West Belfast MLA said: 

“Following the success of last year’s scholarship programme to help young people to study at the Gaeltacht over the summer, applications are opening for the 2023 programme. 

“We want to see as many of our young people right across the island embrace the language and boost their speaking skills in the language, and spending time in the Gaeltacht is a valuable experience in helping to do this.  

“We also believe that our Gaeltacht regions are key to helping our young people discover and explore their heritage. Gaeltacht Summer colleges have seen young people fall in love with the language and culture for generations.

“To apply for these scholarships, please send your child’s name, age, address and course preference to [email protected] before 5pm on Friday 2nd June 2023 and information on successful applicants will be announced in due course.”
