In 1969 a group of young people in Conamara came together to fight for the rights of their local communities. Poverty, emigration and a lack of respect for the Irish language was their motivation. The group became known as The Gaeltacht Civil Rights Movement and they chose 8 aims they felt were required to save their communities and native language. The following twenty years transformed Conamara into a modern and vibrant, rural community, but are the aspirations and hope of that generation still in tune with those of today’s, a generation who benefited greatly from the fruits of the change.
