Mr Bradley said: "Learning language is much more fun in a group context and it only takes one other person to get the conversation going. I would encourage speakers of Irish across the country to seek out a conversation group in their area and join in the craic.

"Where no group exists it is quite easy to establish a new group and Conradh na Gaeilge in the local area will certainly provide all necessary support."
