 Gaelbhratach is a support scheme for schools of all types across Ireland. Gaelbhratach focuses on the promotion of Irish in a structured, planned and enjoyable way in both primary and secondary schools.

The goal of the Gaelbhratach scheme is to inspire the use of Irish, not only within the classroom, but also as a spoken language of the school community. Emphasis is placed upon communicative Irish and the importance of language awareness as a means of learning for children in particular. A Gaelbhratach is duly awarded in recognition of the schools' efforts.
