Radio-Konkurado la Irish Times:

Most students will tell you that the future of the Irish language depends on how relevant it is made to their everyday lives. If its old-fashioned and dated image could be purged, they say, more Irish people would be keen to use the language on a regular basis.

The media is a good place to start. Gael Linn's radio competition is proving popular with Transition Year students; entrants are expected to produce an Irish radio programme of between 15 and 20 minutes on a subject of their choice. There are two categories, one for gaelscoileanna and another for English-speaking schools.
