Geographic Information System (GIS) – Gaeltacht Language Planning Areas
In order to further support the implementation of the language planning process in the Gaeltacht, the Department of Arts, Heritage Regional, Rural and Gaeltacht Affairs have developed a Geographic Information system (GIS) for Gaeltacht Language Planning Areas. The system is being released as a beta version and will be further developed based on user feedback.
Under the system, census data for 2006 and 2011 is presented regarding Irish language usage by Electoral Division in the Gaeltacht. Provisional information provided by the Department of Education and Skills regarding the location and population of primary and secondary schools in respect of the school year 2014/15 is also presented in map format.
In presenting this data, the Department wishes to acknowledge the following:
