Talk Irish is a social learning network founded in April 2008. Learners, speakers and teachers of Irish all over the world get
together here to learn, share and teach Irish. If you want more information about what we do,
www.talkirish.com is supported by the Creative Industries Innovation Fund. We are proud to acknowledge their support as our key funder.
We've also received grant and other support from the amazing people in these organisations: UnLtd,
Social Entrepreneurs Ireland,
Ultach, and Invest NI (through the Transform programme).
