During Alek's residency, we took a trip to Ráth Chairn, Co. Meath, an hour from Dublin. Ráth Chairn is a Gaeltacht area, where the community carries out their daily lives in Irish. One of Foras na Gaeilge's offices is based here- Clár na Leabhar Gaeilge.
We took a tour of the office as well as a lively discussion on writing, publishing and books.
It provides support for Irish language publishers through the Publishing Scheme, and to Irish language writers mainly through the writing schemes.
