Summary and Info
This book considers the growth of the Irish language in Belfast today. The reader is invited to take a close look at a unique vibrant speech community in Belfast. During the 1960's, its members took an important step, when they determined to create an environment wherein they could raise their children as Irish speakers. The success of the initiative is most clearly evidenced by the steady diffusion of bilingualism throughout surrounding neighbourhoods.
