Language Planning Survey



We will be conducting a short survey on the use of the Irish language on Cape Clear Island.It is estimated that the survey will only take 15-20 minutes to fill out. All the information gathered on the surveys will be completely anonymous. The information gathered will only be used for the language planning project.


We will be distributing the surveys during the week starting Monday 29th of May 2017. You have the choice to complete the survey on paper or online on the Cape Clear website (watch this space for the online survey link). We (Caoimhe and Sadhbh) will be going from house to house collecting the surveys and helping with the filling out process if desired from the week starting Tuesday 6th of June 2017. The deadline for completing the survey is Friday 30th of June 2017. You can contact us by email ( or send a text to 085 7204910.


This survey is part of the 20 Year Language Strategy that Údarás na Gaeltachta have in place. It is a chance for everyone to have an equal input in the development of the language planning, and to gain a comprehensive understanding of the opinions of the community about the Irish language and the development of the island in general.


We are very grateful for your participation,

Thank you,
