Three universities have been invited to submit proposals for an Irish Language Plan for Galway city.
This week, Gaillimh le Gaeilge have confirmed that they have received approval from Galway City Council to invite the three institutions to forward proposals for such a plan.
Earlier this year they posted a tender seeking a suitable consultant to prepare an Irish Language Plan for Galway City, but the tender did not return any suitable provider.
“We now have approval from Galway City Council to proceed with an invitation to three Universities; Roinn na Gaeilge NUI Galway, Fiontar agus Scoil na Gaeilge, DCU and Maynooth University, to submit proposals to prepare an Irish Language Plan for Galway City.
“The invitation will be issued on Friday, August 17 and the deadline for submissions is 4.00pm, Monday, September 17 2018. Work on the plan will begin shortly after that,” confirmed Gaillimh le Gaeilge.
