Promoting heritage, culture & language

Supporting a Multicultural Society

There are over 600,000 people in Ireland, or 13 percent of the  population, who are multilingual, speaking a language other than Irish or English at home (2016 Census). There are 72 different languages listed and each of these languages has at least 500 speakers living in Ireland.

Languages Connect supports many projects that help families and communities maintain these home languages adding to the growing multi-cultural nature of Irish society. We fund summer camps for heritage languages nationwide, library book schemes, support for diversification of Leaving Cert languages both within and outside of school setting through Saturday classes across in various locations around Ireland.
