About Gaeltacht an Oileáin Úir:

Gaeltacht an Oileáin Úir, located in Tamworth Ontario, is the only officially recognized Irish (Gaelic) speaking community outside of Ireland. ‘Gaeltacht’ areas are those in which Irish is spoken as a community language, and where the rich and ancient Gaelic traditions are very much alive and thriving. We run immersive language and cultural courses throughout the year to reintroduce and maintain the language and culture as an active part of daily life in the diaspora.
