It’s fact that across Ireland, the communal language is English. That’s what we fight against with Bitesize Irish Gaelic. It’s what you can have an effect on by showing an Irish person in Ireland that you can speak some Irish!
That being said, there are certain “Gaeltacht” areas where the main community language is Irish. Those communities are mainly along the western coast of Ireland (furthest away points from Britain!).
The thing about the Gaeltacht regions, is that they’re absolutely beautiful. Check out an old blog post of ours to see lots of pictures of the Kerry Gaeltacht.
