Parents have a great opportunity to help us open new gaelcholáistí for their children. This video gives an overview of our campaign.
What is An Foras Pátrúnachta?
We are the largest patron of Irish-medium schools at both primary and secondary level. We’re also a main provider of multi-denominational schools. Over 17,000 students attend our schools across 23 counties.
We want Irish-medium education to be available to all.
We have brought together parent-led campaigns and stakeholders from across the country with the aim of establishing new gaelcholáistí in areas of high demand. There is no Irish-medium provision at second level in any of the areas we are campaigning in despite large numbers attending gaelscoileanna.
