1990-1999

New Ventures
In 1992 Gael Linn started organizing tablequizzes for secondary school students in Northern Ireland - Tráth na gCeist - Gael Linn.

Gael Linn organized the same quizzes, this time aimed at adults, in conjunction with BBC Radio Ulster. The name of the series broadcast was Freag air and with RTÉ Radio 1 called Ceist Agam Ort.

Gael Linn organized a very successful tablequiz called Spraoicheist for children in fifth and sixth class in national schools. Spraoicheist is still organized today in schools around the country. For more details, please refer to the Cultural Activities page.

The organisation was also employing new technologies to bring Irish into line with modern language in the world.

A joint venture with Granada Learning resulted in the launch of an interactive writing programme on CD-Rom entitled An Scríbhneoir Óg / Young Writer's Workshop. Four different language versions are included on one disc - Irish, English, French and German.
