This world record attempt was started by Conradh na Gaeilge for the first time in 2013 with Comhrá 247, when they managed to reach 169 hours of non stop chat as Gaeilge, a world record!
In 2019 hundreds of people took part in Comhrá ‘19 from 15-17 October. The live Irish language conversation traveled over 50,000 km and was broadcasted live on www.snag.ie.
Comhrá is an international campaign. Irish language and Gaeltacht groups, third level societies, schools, GAA clubs, conversation circles, radio stations, Conradh na Gaeilge branches, and many other community groups around the world take part in this Irish language conversation. Google Hangouts is used to create a continuous conversation, that you can take part in by using a computer or a phone, and it is a great opportunity to meet people with Irish throughout the world!
This year we’re planning on breaking yet another record with Comhrá’20. We welcome all groups, individuals and scoileanna to join us this year .
