James Connolly Debating Society

Join the debate on the future of our national tongue on Thursday 21st February at 7.00pm in the Roddy McCorley Club, Glen Road, Belfast.
The Cultural Revolution
The Cultural Revolution

The Irish language movement in the Six Counties has continued to grow despite attacks on it and reaction against attempts to gain it equal status by various Stormont regimes and British governments. The movement in the Twenty-Six Counties has experienced a revival of late despite apathy from the Dublin government and hostility from sections of the media.

What is the relationship between the Irish language and progressive politics today? Is it a means by which a national population can exert its autonomy against a homogenising neo-liberal system? Can it act as a bulwark for diversity against an ever-encroaching Anglo-US cultural imperialism? Moreover, what role has the Irish language community to play in the struggle for a better Ireland and the regaining of our national independence and unity? Can the language truly progress as long as capitalism remains the predominant ideology in our society?

Join the debate on the future of our national tongue on Thursday 21st February at 7.00pm in the Roddy McCorley Club, Glen Road, Belfast.
