Great news for the Irish language in Co. Down

Efforts are underway to establish an Irish medium secondary school in Castlewellan, great news for the language.

It is important to understand that the Irish language survived much longer in Castlewellan and surrounding districts that it did in Newry for example.

Indeed, Cill Chua was once an important centre of Gaelic leanring and literature, as was Loch an Oileàin.
