Ursula Ní Shabhaois, a young entrepreneur and founder of Cinnteacht, providing support services and strategic advice for organisations, has been elected President of Comhaltas Uladh.  Comhaltas Uladh is the active Ulster committee for branches of Conradh na Gaeilge, founded in 1926, and operating in Ulster and in County Louth.

“Comhaltas Uladh has a longstanding history promoting the Irish Language in Ulster and Louth, and it is an honour to have been appointed President.  Over the years, much work has been done through event organisation, provision of scholarships for young people and adult learners, running competitions in schools and much more.  To build on this, I believe that there are opportunities for Comhaltas Uladh to implement a supportive infrastructure for the community, and to create spaces in which people can learn and  work together,” says Ní Shabhaois.
Ursula would like to place an emphasis on day-to-day social events and community groups which will add to the presence of the Irish language in the area, as part of the infrastructure in place for the language and its speakers.   There will also be an emphasis on networking and strengthening relationships between branches, who will be able to share information and experience, and to support each other.

It was her experience working with Conradh na Gaeilge, both as an employee and as a voluntary member that inspired Ursula to undertake this role as president..

“The branches of Comhaltas Uladh have been hard at work for many years, as have branches of Conradh na Gaeilge all over the country.  This voluntary work is incredibly important, and I hope to provide further support for these groups, building a network that will strengthen the community overall.“
Ursula admits that there will be challenges to overcome, but says that she is ready to work through them with her aim to strengthen the Irish language community in the north.
“Of course, we are facing challenges at the moment in terms of ensuring resources and funding, and in terms of achieving language rights for the Irish speaking community.  I am optimistic, however that we will be able to overcome these issues, and Comhaltas Uladh will have a central role in this work, as it always has.
During my time as President, I hope to build on the work that has been done by Comhaltas Uladh over the years, strengthening the organisation and tending to the current needs of the Irish speak community."

Conradh na Gaeilge are looking forward to working with Ursula Ní Shabhaois to strengthen branches of Comhaltas Uladh in Ulster, and to support Irish language communities in the area.
Dr. Niall Comer, President of Conradh na Gaeilge;
“We are delighted to welcome Ursula as President of Comhaltas Uladh.  We look forward to working with her and will support her work with an Comhaltas in any way possible.”
