Our sole mission is to promote Gaeilge, the cornerstone of Irish identity and culture.
The Coláiste is situated in Indreabhán, a Gaeltacht area, where the language has been passed down for thousands of years.
Students reside in Tithe Lóistin (local families) for the duration of their three week course with an average of 11 students accommodated with each family.
We are non-profit and while Mná Tí receive some State support the coláiste does not.
We operate on an admin cost of less than 7% with the rest of our budget being reinvested in running/developing our cúrsaí Gaeilge for our students.
