Revised Rules for Gleo Schools Competition

Foras na Gaeilge would like to remind principals, school teachers and students that the GLEO scheme will run from now until May 31st. If schools want to enter this scheme there are application forms available on the Foras na Gaeilge website at


The GLEO scheme, which has been run by Foras na Gaeilge for the past six years, awards English-speaking schools for leading the way in promoting spoken Irish in their schools and communities throughout the year. Entrants this year are encouraged to make a short video about their school showing how the use of spoken Irish is actively encouraged and developed in their respective schools. The video clip entries must reach Foras na Gaeilge by May 31 and may be submitted through the Foras na Gaeilge website.


In 2011 fifty four schools from across the length and breadth of the island of Ireland entered the GLEO competition and were visited by independent judges, who then selected the seventeen outstanding.  The judges found websites, drama and puppet shows, quizzes and passionate debates, to name but a few of the varied activities, all run as Gaeilge.


Examples of the events and activities that schools have organised in past schemes are available at
