The word 'Ultach' means 'person from Ulster' but in our case it is also an acronym for 'Ulster Language, Traditions and Cultural Heritage', therefore the organisation's title appears in capital letters. 

ULTACH is an independent charitable trust based in Belfast. Our principal aim is to promote the Irish language throughout the entire community of Northern Ireland. A core objective is to encourage cross-community involvement in the language, and the membership of the Board of Trustees reflects both major religious traditions.

The Trust is currently core-funded by Foras na Gaeilge, the Irish language agency of the Cross-Border Language Body.

The Trust tends to concentrate its resources on in-house projects and partnerships with other organisations rather than grants. The following list summarises the Trust’s current key areas of activity:

  •          engaging in cross-community work

  •          developing learning resources

  •          forming strategic partnerships with relevant community, research, educational and

                   statutory agencies

  •          advising government and statutory agencies on language planning and policy issues

  •          campaigning for the establishment of an Irish-language broadcasting sector in

                   Northern Ireland

  •          publishing material on the Irish language and related issues

  •          initiating innovative language projects

  •          funding Irish language projects
