Q How can I get involved?

A Initially, a series of information evenings will be held to familiarise both the general public and local businesses with the project and how it will work.

Q I dont have much Irish. Can I participate?

A Yes! Support in the form of ‘Conversation Circles’ will be provided to cater for everybody, whether a beginner or a more fluent speaker ‘as Gaeilge’. Times of these Circles will be flexible to facilitate both the business community and the general public.

Q What other support systems will be available?

A Through our partnerships with Foras na Gaeilge, Conradh na Gaeilge and Glór na nGael we will provide access to a range of supports including:

  • A comprehensive phrase book to help in doing business ‘as Gaeilge’.
  • A range of stickers and internal signs ‘as Gaeilge’ for retailers.
  • A professional translation service, available locally through an Clár as Gaeilge, to help with advertising copy, brochures and signage for local businesses.
  • Advice and support on how best to market your business or product through the medium of Irish.
  • Identifying suitable Irish language advertising opportunities and helping local businesses to avail of these.

Q ‘Inis Dom!’... what will the long term benefits be for the town of Ennis?

A ‘Inis Dom!’ will help to consolidate the image of Ennis as a centre of Irish traditional culture.

It will create a unique atmosphere in the town, making it an attractive shopping destination for visitors and locals alike.

Being a bilingual town would make Ennis a natural choice as a venue to host major international cultural festivals.
