Funding Options

Responding to the Bursary and other funding streams, Councillor Barra Ó Muirí has urged children in South Armagh to avail of the Gaeltacht Scholarship schemes currently available to them.

The Slieve Gullion Councillor said, "As joint chair of the Irish Language Strategy Cross Party Working Group, I am delighted to announce that our Council Bursary Scheme is now open to applicants. The Scheme offers applicants the chance to apply for 50% funding of course costs, up to £300. Last year, £30,000 was spent on scholarships to send out young people to the Gaeltacht, to develop their love and understanding of the language, as well as preparing them for Examinations”.

He continued, “This year, we also have a small budget set aside for adult learners who wish to attend a course to boost their understanding of the Irish language. We are anticipating a lot of interest in these schemes. The application forms for the council bursary Scheme can be downloaded from the Council website.’

The Councillor also praised the GAA with a scheme launched recently by the Armagh County Board.

‘The Armagh County Board have also launched their Scholarship Scheme, where children and their parents fill out a form, have it signed by the club secretary and send it back to me, as County Cultural Officer. Last year, the County Board gave out over £12,000 in scholarships to young GAA members attending Gaeltacht courses, with all applicants receiving roughly £100.

These schemes are great news for language enthusiasts, and with course costs rising to £600 at times, they are very welcome.”
