The Gaelic League
22-FEB-2009

The Gaelic League

Conradh na Gaeilge or the Gaelic League
was formed to revive the Irish language in 1893.
Unfortunately our native language is still
in decline

I'm with Keith, keep it going. Love the shot.

that's a pity...such a beautiful sounding language, as still heard in the singing of many great Irish musicians such as Karan Casey, Mairead Ni Dhomnaill, and John Spillane...V

A beautifully bold image with the strong contrasts, clearly showing the determination to keep the language alive.

Awesome caputre, Mairead.

Don't let it die Mairead, its precious - no language, no nation.
