20-Year Strategy for the Irish Language 2010–2030

The 20-Year Strategy for the Irish Language 2010–2030 (Irish: Straitéis 20 Bliain don Ghaeilge 2010–2030) is a 20-year strategy launched by the Government of Ireland on 20 December 2010 and which will be in operation until December 2030. The main aim of the Strategy is to increase the number of daily Irish speakers in Ireland to 250,000 by 2030.[1][2][3] In the 2011 census this number was at 77,185. In the 2016 census it had dropped to 73,803.

In June 2018 Minister of State for the Irish Language, Gaeltacht and the Islands Joe McHugh TD launched the first cross-governmental Action Plan for the 20-Year Strategy for the Irish Language 2010-2030 which is operating between 2018 and 2022.[4]
