Comhdháil an Fhorais Phátrúnachta 2015 was run with great success in Dublin on Saturday 28 February.

 

The Irish Language Commissioner, Rónán Ó Domhnaill, started the day with an inspiring talk on the language rights of Gaelscoileanna. 

 

'Gaeloideachas do Chách' was the theme for this years conference. Several topics were discussed on the day by excellent guest speakers; school finance, data protection and school ethos'. School principals, members of boards of management, representatives from Irish organisations and educational organisations made up some of the delegates attending on thye day. Some talented young musicians from Comhaltas Ceoltóirí Éireann gave great entertainment during the tea break too. 

 

The winners of the Comórtas Ealaíne were announced, a competition which was this year sponsored by Foras na Gaeilge. The standard of the entries were extremely high, and the winners won some great prizes; tablets, mobile phones and a Wii to name just a few. 

 

Caoimhín Ó hEaghra, Secretary of An Foras Pátrúnachta, had this to say: "I would like to sincerely thank everyone who took part in the conference and AGM this year.

 

"There was a great crowd on the day and first-class guest speakers. It's clear from the feedback we have received already that everyone who attended benefited from what was discussed at the conference."
