Irish back in print – Nuacht24

Apologies to Gaeilgeoirí as you may have read most of this last week – Just over a month since the final edition of Lá Nua the Irish language is back in print in Belfast.

Nuacht24 is a weekly available An Druma Mór and in print from the Cultúrlann at a price of just 30 pence. The paper, produced by Lá co-founder, Eoghan Ó Néill, is growing and developing with each new issue. The material is taken from the Irish language news service An Druma Mór Nuacht ( personally feel that Nuacht24 it is looking very well, especially given that it does not receive a penny of grant aid.

In other good news, Lá Nua’s demise seems to have been somewhat exaggerated for its arts section will continue to be produced, it will be available online ( and in print in the Belfast Media Group’s titles. Former Lá Nua editor Ciarán Ó Pronntaigh has been appointed editor.

Of course I should mention that the lifestyle magazine nós* ( continues to blossom, issue three should be in print in the next few weeks. Without a shadow of a doubt, nós* is the finest magazine available in Irish (there is also Scottish material in nós* by the way!). Like Nuacht24, not on red penny does nós* get from Foras na Gaeilge – says it all doesn’t it?

I wonder, is it despite of this lack of support or because of it that nós* is such a strong product?

Update : Can’t seem to get the links working so here they are …
