Gaeilge Locha Riach was established in 1999, with the aim of promoting the Irish language in Loughrea. Gaeilge Locha Riach organizes Irish language classes, as well as Irish language events, such as the CLEAS book club, conversation circle, summer camps, youth club (Spleodar), and social evenings throughout the year.
We also provide supports for businesses, to enhance the service through Irish available in Loughrea.
