The word Líofa means ‘fluent’ and this is precisely what The Líofa Initiative strives to achieve – a greater number of fluent Irish speakers.
We at Líofa aim to encourage as many people as possible to make a personal pledge to improve their Irish, and in doing so, to join a community of like-minded people focused on learning and using the language. We also aim to support learners at any stage on their language journey, as the Irish proverb goes Ní neart go cur le chéile, which means that together we're stronger.
The Líofa Initiative was launched in September 2011 to get 1000 people to sign up to Líofa and commit to improving and using Irish. In light of the huge interest and momentum in the campaign, the target has recently been revised to 20,000 pledges by 2020.
