The biggest Irish language festival in Ireland and the world. 

Seachtain na Gaeilge le Energia is an international Irish language festival and one of the biggest celebrations of our native language and culture that takes place each year in Ireland and in many other countries.

Seachtain na Gaeilge le Energia 2019

Tracy Clifford

I’m Tracy Clifford and I’m a radio producer with 2FM. I learned Irish last year for Bliain na Gaeilge and I managed to broadcast a show of mine in the Gaeltacht. I’m really looking forward to being an ambassador for Seachtain na Gaeilge le Energia, it’s a really good opportunity for me to keep using my Irish and to use more Irish daily.

Michael Darragh Macauley

I’m Michael Darragh Macauley and I’m a footballer with the Dublin team. I think there is a strong link between Gaelic games and the Irish language. Everyone can use more Irish in every aspect of their lives, even playing sport, like me.

Linda Ervine

My name is Linda Ervine, and eight years ago I didn’t even have the word ‘fáilte’ in my vocabulary. I’m currently working as an Irish development officer, encouraging people from the unionist community to engage with the language. I encourage everyone to use whatever Gaeilge they have during Seachtain na Gaeilge le Energia.

Sibéal Ní Chasaide

My name is Sibéal, and I’m from the Ráth Chairn Gaeltacht. Last year I took part in Ceol with an Irish version of the Cranberries songs ‘Linger’. I’m a proud native speaker and delighted to be an ambassador for Seachtain na Gaeilge le Energia.
