The establishment of BÁC le Gaeilge is a great opportunity to increase the use of the language in Dublin city - where there is a large Irish language community due to a wide range of Irish language establishments being located there. These include early education services, gaelscoileanna and Gaelcholáistí, Irish language organisations, two radio stations broadcasting in Irish, Na Gaeil Óga GAA club, third level courses in Irish and many other establishments.
