Cuireadh Conradh na Gaeilge ar bun i mBaile Átha Cliath, sa bhliain 1893 mar eagraíocht neamhpholaitiúil agus neamhsheicteach le gach gné den chultúr Ghealach a chur chun cinn, ach go háirithe an teanga agus an litríocht. The first Gaelic League activity outside Ireland was here in Glasgow in 1895. Of the 14 branches that existed throughout the city, the Pádraig Pearse branch is still alive and flourishing!

Bunaíodh Craobh Phádraig Mhic Piarais
i nGlaschú i 1895, an chéad chraobh taobh amuigh d'Éirinn, agus tá sí faoi rath agus faoi bhláth go fóill.
Chuir Conradh na Gaeilge an Coimisiún Rince
Gaelach ar bun fosta agus tá sé faoi choimirce an Chonartha go fóill. Bhain an damhsa Gaelach sochar mór as an socrú seo nó thosaigh an chuid is mó de na craobhacha a réachtáil ranganna damhsa.
Bíonn ranganna Gaeilge ar siúl ag gach
leibhéal I Daisy Street, Govanhill, Dé Céadaoin 2in - 4in, Deardaoin 7.30 - 9, agus dé hAoine 7.30in - 9.30in gach seachtain. Bíonn rang paistí ann Dé Domhnaigh 12in - 1.30in
Ma's maith leat dúshlán a ghlacadh nó
cáilíocht i nGaeilge a fháil, thig linn cuidiú a thabhairt duit. Le blianta beaga anuas d'éirigh go geal le mic léinn as na ranganna sna scrúduithe GOML, GCSE agus "A" leibhéal faoi choimirce an Roinn Oideachais sna Sé Chondae. Bíonn na scrúduithe i Holyrood Secondary School agus táimid iontach buíoch as cuidiú na foirne ansin.
Sa bhliain 2006 bhí muid in ann oifigeach
forbartha lánaimeartha a fhostú, agus i 2007 bhain muid an dara duais sa chomórtas idirnaisiúnta ag Glór na nGael le Gaeilge a chur chun cinn.
I rith na bliana réachtálaíonn an chraobh,
chomh maith leis na ranganna, céilithe, ceardlanna Gaeilge le múinteoirí cáilithe, ceardlanna amhranaíochta sean nós le teagasc ó bhuaiteoir san Oireachtas, Tráth na gCeist agus araile.
Ceiliúrann an Conradh Lá Fhéile Bríde
le céilé agus le déanamh crasóg Bhríde. Bíonn aifreann againn as Gaeilge gach Lá Fhéile Pádraig le sagart as gaeltacht Dhún na nGall, agus coisir Ghealach ina dhiadh.
Bíonn baill a Chonartha san iomaíocht sna
comortais Ghaelacha ag Feis Ghlaschú agus ag fleá an Chomhaltais. Tá nasc dlúth againn le Comhaltas Ceoltoirí Éireann, le himeachtaí Cumann Lúthchleas Gael, le heagraíochtaí Éireannacha eile, agus le Cumann na Gàidhlig

In 1893 The Gaelic League
was founded in Dublin by Douglas Hyde and others to stem the decline and revive interest in the National Language. The League did more than this, for it awakened a new national consciousness and created a cultural and political revolution which culminated in the rising of 1916.
The Pádraig Pearse Branch in Glasgow,
the first to be founded out with Ireland, was established in 1895 and is still flourishing. We aim to promote Irish language education and arts through language classes, conversation, singing, poetry, drama and Irish cultural activites.
Each week we offer
7 Irish language classes for adults in Daisy street, Govanhill.
  • Monday 7pm – 9pm – Beginners/Lower Intermediate learners
  • Wednesday 1 – 2pm – Beginners, 2 – 4pm – Advanced learners
  • Friday 7pm – 9pm – Classes for Beginners, Intermediate 1, Intermediate 2, and Advanced learners.
A further Irish class is offered
in conjunction with the Johnny Doherty branch of Comhaltas in Holytown on Wednesday evenings. Each year we are involved in Irish language workshops with well known tutors such as Éamonn Ó Donaill and Cóilín Ó Flionn, check the calendar for details. For the past few years we have prepared students for CCEA exams at GOML, GCSE, AS and A-level Irish, Kindly facilitated by Holyrood Secondary school.
In 2007 we started a children’s class,
a fun way for children to learn the Irish language. The class runs from 12:30-2pm every Sunday during school term and is aimed at Primary level children. All tutors and volunteers have been checked by Disclosure Scotland. Click here to see our child protection policy. Children’s classes are every Sunday in Daisy Street 12pm – 1.30pm. Listen to some of the kids learning here.
Away from the classroom we have a
fortnightly conversation circle who meet up for a drink and a chat to use their conversational Irish in Molly Malones pub in the city centre (224 Hope St) – The conversation group meets every 2nd & 4th Tuesday @8pm.
To develop Irish culture and arts
we established in 2008 our own Singers' group Ceoltóirí Chonradh na Gaeilge. This group have gone from strength to strength and regularly appear around Glasgow and further afield. They are always looking for new members, so if you are interested, please get in touch. We also try to offer Sean nós singing workshops as often as we can with some of the most gifted singers in Ireland. We support the work of Feis Ghlaschú and encourage our members to participate in Gaelic poetry, storytelling and singing competitions. We hold Gaels le Cheile events (featuring Irish & Gaidhlig workshops during the day with a joint Irish/Gaidhlig Cois Tine in the evening) at regular intervals throughout the year not only as a social activity, but to encourage people to use their Irish, to sing and have a bit of a dance.
We have been involved with Comhlachas Náisiúnta Drámaíochta
in hosting the play Peacadh Colmcille by Francie Cullen and the Meevagh Players here in Glasgow. Drama workshops with CND are scheduled for 2008 to assist members of the league with our own production. Watch this space!!
Our hugely successful memorial exhibition
Our hugely successful memorial exhibition of Tubaiste Kirkintilloch has begun touring Ireland and Scotland and will continue to do so until September 2008. Click here for more details
Other Activities organised throughout the year
include celebrations for the feast of St Brigid and Mass celebrated in Irish for the feast of St Patrick. An annual Tráth na gCeist for the coveted Seán Feeney cup takes place in June.
The Gaelic League supports the activities
The Gaelic League supports the activities of all our Gaelic friends in both Irish and Gaidhlig cultural organisations in Scotland. See our friends page for links, information and for our sponsors.
