The primary aim of Gaeltacht Leamhcán is to support the continued revival of the Irish language in the Lucan area. Our camp is designed to help students grow a love for our national language through it’s use in all daily activities. We believe by creating an enjoyable learning environment the language can thrive and be learnt more effectively.
Gaeltacht leamhcáin offers students the opportunity to experience the Gaeltacht environment within their own community and with students from their own community. It is internationally recognised that complete immersion in a language through all daily activites is the most effective way to develop a fluency in that language. Learning through craic, ceoil and sport will nurture a love for the Irish language. We want students to appreciate the language as a living, vibrant and practical language rather than merely viewing it as a school subject. By positively changing students attitudes to the language we believe that students will approach the language with a positive mentality throughout primary and secondary school.
