TWAW  IRELAND Promoting  – Slí an Atlantaigh Fhiáin – the Wild Atlantic Way

First of all, we are in no way associated with Fáilte Ireland. We have developed this website so as to allow businesses along Slí an Atlantaigh Fhiáin – the Wild Atlantic Way to advertise and to help promote the use of the Irish Language. Fáilte Ireland have omitted the phrase, “Slí an Atlantaigh Fhiáin” from the Official Wild Atlantic Way website and other official literature. We feel that the phrase “Slí an Atlantaigh Fhiáin” should be given the same prominence as the Wild Atlantic Way, given that Irish is our Official Language.

“Tír gan teanga, tír gan anam.

A country without a language is a country without a soul”

This was a famous quote by Patrick Henry Pearse who was an Irish teacher, barrister, poet, writer, nationalist and political activist and who was one of the leaders of the Easter Rising in 1916. It is interesting to see that a lot of people refer to Patrick Henry Pearse as Pádraig Pearse, whereas he never mixed the languages and always used Patrick. I wonder what his view would be on the use of “Fáilte Ireland” – mixing the language!!!

Slí an Atlantaigh Fhiáin – the Wild Atlantic Way is Ireland’s new coastal route that runs from the Inishowen Peninsula, County Donegal, in the north to Kinsale, County Cork in the south.
