Much of the peninsula of Corca Dhuibhne is a Gaeltacht or an area where the Irish language (Gaeilge or Gaelainn) is widely spoken in the home, workplace or school. caintsign (124K) In the early summer, many school students from other parts of Ireland stay for three week-long Colaistí Samhraidh or Summer Language Colleges, staying in the homes of local people and participating in a rich programme of events.
