Wild Atlantic Way

Wild Atlantic Way

People come from all over the world to get a taste of the Wild Atlantic Way, but this is only a taste whereas we at FEICIM provide a unique experience, a delight you’ll always cherish. We live up to our self-proclaimed title as the ‘best in the west’.  We deliver this experience in the native culture, in one of Ireland’s Gaelic strongholds, Inis Oírr the kingdom of Gaelic tradition.

Irish language learners, both nationally and internationally are drawn to FEICIM’s informal conversational classes and activity based learning model. A visitor with FEICIM gets the ‘lived experience’ and our range of activities include day-trips to the other two majestic Aran islands, Inis Meáin and Inis Mór.  This is true immersion, the lived experience and the essence of Gaelic culture, the true Wild Atlantic experience and certainly something not to miss.

Press Release – THE IRISH EDGE – new course for business

A new Irish language course for business begins on April 18 on Inis Oírr (Inishere) on the Aran Islands. This 5-day course will run by the Irish language promotion company, FEICIM.

Due to requests from business people across the country and from organisations in the Gaeltacht, we have designed this special language course to facilitate those who are seeking to improve customer services. There is a growing demand for services through Irish and FEICIM are well placed to facilitate those companies who want to get the Irish edge on their competitors. As well as classroom activities such as role-play and group work, we organise guided walks, craft workshops and other activities outside the classroom. Located in one of the strongest Gaeltacht areas, FEICIM courses provide the opportunity to be immersed and see the Irish language used naturally in the community.

FEICIM runs Irish language courses for adults every summer. These activity filled courses offer a chance for learners of all levels to take their language ability to the next level. This year we will have a special lecture to commemorate 1916 as well as an optional Scottish Gaelic class for higher levels. Each week all classes will get to take a day trip to one of our neighboring Aran Islands, Inis Meáin and Inis Mór. You can also be sure of plenty of music and craic every night in the local pubs! For more information about the new Irish Edge for Business course as well as details of all our summer courses visit: www.feicim.com. The special introductory fee for our Irish course for business is €200 and our regular Irish courses range from €250 p/w. You can keep up with our offers, news and competitions on social media channels www.facebook.com/feicim and https://twitter.com/feicim.

Activity-based Language Learning

We at FEICIM understand that true learning occurs in engagement, and engage we do. We try and attend every learner’s needs. The visual and the auditory learner excels inside the classroom, but what about outside the classroom? These experiences are suited to everybody, but the kinesthetic learner in particular benefits. So why not try your hand at indigenous craftwork, catch yourself a fish supper, learn a tune on a tin-whistle, enjoy cultural workshops, swim in the beautiful clear waters of our blueflag beach, enjoy the live music in the bars at night or just relax in the evenings and benefit from a paddle along the sandy shore.  Check out our provisional schedule where you will see all the activities on offer on our Irish language courses for adults.

FEICIM 2016 – what’s new?

There has been much discussion about the 1916 Anniversary Commemoration and, at FEICIM, we like to think about the importance of coming together and focus on similarities rather than differences. We look at the Gaelic Continuum – this year we are delighted to announce a new international dimension:  a Scottish Gaelic workshop which will be available to anyone interested in the language of our nearest linguistic neighbors! This is what makes FEICIM special, access to traditional Irish culture blended with new concepts of language revival and supporting language minorities, be it on the Aran Islands or on the Isle of Skye.

Join us and take part in a truly unique experience, only to be found with FEICIM in Inis Oírr.

Litir chuig an Taoiseach

roinn v arainn

An Roinn V Árainn                        Bhfuil Pleanáil Teanga ar an gclár ar chor ar bith?

Seo sliocht as an litir sin.

“Níl mórán ceantar ina bhfuil breis is 67% den daonra ina gcainteoirí laethúla Gaeilge (Catagóir A) agus caithfidh muid iad seo a chosaint má tá aon seans againn an teanga a choinneáil beo sa nGaeltacht.  Is ionann 67% den phobal a bheidh ina gcainteoirí laethúla Gaeilge agus tairseach chinniúnach theangeolaíoch.  Léiríonn an taighde go dtagann laghdú tobann ar úsáid na Gaeilge mar theanga theaghlaigh agus phobail nuair a thiteann líon na gcainteoirí laethúla i gceantar faoi bhun na tairsí seo.

Níl ach 21 den 155 toghrann Gaeltachta i gcatagóir A de réir dháileadh na faisnéise a bhaineanna le torthaí Dhaonáireamh 2011.  Má táthar chun an Ghaeilge a choinneáil beo mar theanga pobail sna ceantair seo caithfear pleanáil comhtháite a chur i bhfeidhm.  Ciallaíonn sé sin gur chóir go mbeadh critéir teangeolaíoch i gceist le chuile fhorbairt  nó ar athrú ar bith a dhéantar ar an sochaí sna ceantair seo.  Tá an seirbhís aeir go Conamara riachtanach do na scoileanna ar na hoileáin, tá sé riachtanach do sheirbhís sláinte, don gheilleagar,  go deimhin do h-inmharthanacht na n-oileáin.  Má tá an rialtas ag iarraidh cuidiú le pobail Gaeltachta an teanga a chur chun cinn, caithfear a bheith níos cúramaí faoi na cinntí a dhéantar sa nGaeltacht.  Tá pleanáil comhtháite sna heagraíochtaí atá ag plé leis an nGaeltacht thar a bheith tábhachtach chomh maith le pleanáil comhtháite idir ranna.”

fly me to the moon…

the donkey's hind legs

“Business is Business! Everyday, all around the country, deals are made behind closed doors. Names signed on dotted lines followed by congratulatory handshakes or maybe a good ol’ pat on the back, and possibly a martini afterwards. These deals used to be orchestrated by ‘business’ men. You know those men in suits that somehow seem disconnected from the real world. Most of the time these deals are mundane, business type arrangements, but ultimately the outcome is to make one party wealthier than the other. Power.
I worked in Baggot Street in Dublin for a number of years, so I was very central to the high flying business and government district. I saw these business men in suits EVERYWHERE! And I saw ministers and leaders of our country hobnobbing too. They would often emerge from those big glistening office blocks that lined that area at coffee time, and in a wave…
