Líofa (English: Fluent) is an initiative headquartered in Belfast, which aims to assist people in Northern Ireland who wish to support and become fluent speakers of the Irish language (Gaeilge). It was founded in 2011 by the Northern Ireland Executive's Minister of Culture, Arts and Leisure, Carál Ní Chuilín.[1] As part of the project, it has set up the Líofa Gaeltacht Bursary Scheme, whereby people can apply to attend summer courses in the neighbouring County Donegal Gaeltacht.
