About Glór na Móna

Glór na Móna is the key Irish language organisation that operates to promote Irish language and related activities in the Upper Springfield and the surrounding areas.

We are an organisation that has a strong belief in partnership with other groups in the community to widen the ownership of Irish as far as possible. We work on two levels. On one hand we promote Irish through our cultural events and on the other we develop services for the Irish language community.

Through ownership of the language a sense of pride is instilled in the community, this adds to the promotion of a social and cultural economic life and offers new ways of tackling old issues such as inter generational unemployment and under achievement in exams.
