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:
The Trust has a strong cross-community ethos. Since it was established in 1990, the Trust has recognised that cross-community activity works on a number of levels: tackling prejudice; stimulating interest in Irish across the community as a whole; researching the tradition of Protestant involvement in the language and raising awareness of that tradition; analysing those factors which inhibit Protestant and unionist interest in Irish; and providing opportunities to people from that community to engage with, acquire and use the language.
The Trust has
been involved in outreach work for over twenty years, making
presentations on a wide-range of topics to community groups, schools and
academic audiences throughout
presentations on the following topics – they can be specifically
tailored to suit particular areas and are free of charge:
The Trust has also produced a range of resources which the organisation is happy to distribute free-of-charge. For example, our free brochures on the history of Irish and place-names are very popular. Our latest project, a booklet on the Gaelic Placenames of Belfast, has received a lot of attention in the local media; you can view a copy on the ‘publications’ section of our website.
