About Us

Foinse provides the very best in Irish language reporting, news, features, sport and education for everyone from fluent Irish speakers to those with just a ‘cúpla focal’.

Initially set up in 1996, Foinse was closed in the early Summer of 2009 due to falling revenue.

In Autumn of 2009, however, with a new distribution model and a complete redesign, Foinse began publishing again on a Wednesday. The combination of fresh management and new approach to distribution means Foinse is now being read by more people than ever before.

The paper is delivered to tens of thousands of Primary and Secondary schools each week and also includes a page specifically put together by Conradh na Gaeilge for people who are coming back to the language after a long break or who would like to pick up some simple Irish phrases.

Foinse has recently expanded our online presence. Our website has news updates up to 10 times a day and features sport, education, travel, fashion, music, film and many more fun and interactive elements. One of the most popular aspects on is the grammar blog that takes beginners through the basics of Irish grammar and provides a helpful reference for everyone else.

Foinse is also very active on social media such as Facebook, Youtube and Twitter and have become a part oif the active online Irish language community.
