David Mitchell invited guest speaker at Irish language event at Belfast City Hall, 9 October 2018

The event was organised by Foras na Gaeilge, the cross-border body with responsibility for the promotion of the Irish language. It marked the progress made within local councils in Northern Ireland to promote the language, especially through the employment of Irish language officers. David Mitchell spoke on how the language can contribute to peacebuilding, drawing on recently published research co-authored with Megan Miller. The event was also addressed by the Lord Mayor of Belfast, Deirdre Hargey, and representatives of Foras na Gaeilge and Conradh na Gaeilge. Attendees included City Councillors, language activists and local media.
