Aithníonn Comhairle Ceantair an Iúir, Mhúrn agus an Dúin gur dlúthchuid de chreatlach cultúrtha, oidhreachta agus féiniúlachta an Cheantair í an Ghaeilge. Tá an Chomhairle fós tiomanta do na cuspóirí leagtha amach i bPolasaí Dátheangachais na Comhairle agus cuireadh na struchtúir riachtanacha i bhfeidhm le cinntiú go mbeidh rath agus bláth inbhuanaithe ar an Ghaeilge agus ar an Ghaelphobal fáilteach sa cheantar seo.

Leagann Straitéis na Gaeilge de chuid Chomhairle Ceantair an Iúir, Mhúrn agus an Dúin an dóigh a mbeidh an Chomhairle in ann

  • an Ghaeilge a úsáid i comhlíonadh a cuid feidhmeanna
  • an Ghaeilge a úsáid ina cuid cumarsáide leis an phobal agus le páirtithe leasmhara agus 
  • forbairt na Gaeilge a chur chun cinn agus a chothú fud fad an cheantair.

Is iad bunluachanna céanna atá i Straitéis na Gaeilge 2017-19 is atá i bPlean Corporáide Chomhairle Ceantair an Iúir, Mhúrn agus an Dúin (2015 -19):

  • Dírithe ar an tSaoránach: ag cur rannpháirtíocht an tsaoránaigh agus sa phobal, chomh maith le héisteacht go gníomhach agus freagra a thabhairt ar riachtanais Phobal na Gaeilge i gceantar na Comhairle.
  • Freagrach: cinntí a dhéanamh maidir leis an Ghaeilge bunaithe ar mheasúnú neamhchlaonta ar riachtanas agus a bheith oscailte inár dtuairisciú ar fheidhmíocht na Comhairle
  • Comhoibríoch: ag spreagach agus ag gríosú ag gníomhach oibriú i bpáirtíocht agus ar gach leibhéal chun tabhairt faoi riachtanais pobal na Gaeilge sa Cheantar.
  • Inbhuanaithe: Ag aithint tionchair shóisialta, eacnamaíochta, chomhsaoil dearfacha phobal na Gaeilge  agus
  • Cóir: Díreoimid go réamhghníomhach gnímh chun líon na gcásanna a laghdú nuair a bhíonn pobal na Gaeilge nó Gaeilgeoirí aonaracha a roghnaíonn an Ghaeilge mar a phríomhtheanga ina ndaoine imeallaithe a laghdú

The Council remains committed to the objectives set out in our Bilingualism Policy and have put in place the necessary structures to ensure that the Irish language has a sustainable future in the Council area.

Newry, Mourne and Down District Council’s Irish Language Strategy (2017-2019) sets out how the Council:

  • will use the Irish language in the operation of its functions
  • will facilitate the use of the Irish language when communicating with the public and relevant stakeholders; and
  • will promote and encourage the development of the Irish language across the Council area.

The underpinning values of the 2017-19 Irish Language Strategy mirror those of the NMDDC Corporate Plan (2015-19):

  • Citizen Focused: Actively encouraging citizen and community engagement, as well as listening and responding to the evidenced needs of the Irish language community within the Council area.

  • Sustainable: Recognising the positive social, economic and environmental impacts of the Irish language community; and
  • Fair: We will proactively target actions to reduce situations when groups or individuals, who choose to use Irish as their primary language, are marginalised in our community.
