1.1% de dhaoine os cionn 18 bliain sa st谩t a t贸gadh le Gaeilge

T谩 l茅argas 煤r ar ch谩s na Gaeilge sa st谩t ar f谩il i dtuarasc谩il nua 贸n bPr铆omh-Oifig Staidrimh.

De r茅ir na tuarasc谩la nua is beag athr煤 at谩 tagtha ar ch谩s na teanga 贸 Dhaon谩ireamh 2016, a l茅irigh go raibh laghd煤 tagtha ar l铆on na gcainteoir铆 laeth煤la Gaeilge lasmuigh den ch贸ras oideachais.

Chomh maith leis sin, t谩 figi煤r curtha ag an CSO den ch茅ad uair ar l铆on na ndaoine f谩sta sa st谩t a t贸gadh i dteaghlaigh a labhair Gaeilge. De r茅ir na tuarasc谩la 1.1% de dhaoine os cionn 18 bliain sa st谩t a t贸gadh le Gaeilge. Is ionann sin agus beag谩n sa bhreis ar 50,000 duine.

T谩 an t-eolas nua seo ar f谩il sa tuarasc谩il at谩 curtha amach ag an CSO faoin suirbh茅 daon谩irimh p铆ol贸tach a rinne siad in 2018.

Rinneadh an m贸rshuirbh茅 sin ar mhaithe le t谩st谩il a dh茅anamh ar roinnt ceisteanna nua a d鈥檉h茅adfa铆 a chur i nDaon谩ireamh 2021, ceisteanna faoin nGaeilge ina measc.

C茅 nach mbeadh an seasamh c茅anna ag an suirbh茅 a rinneadh i bhf贸mhar 2018 is a bheadh ag an daon谩ireamh f茅in, ghlac os cionn 10,312 teaghlach p谩irt ann, sampla m贸r d鈥檃on suirbh茅.

Lena chois sin, mar gheall go raibh ceisteanna 谩 gcur faoi labhairt na Gaeilge, cinnt铆odh sa suirbh茅 go roghn贸fa铆 ceantair a thabharfadh sampla ionada铆och de chainteoir铆 Gaeilge 贸 Dhaon谩ireamh 2016.

Maidir leis an gceist a bh铆 谩 t谩st谩il faoi l铆on na ndaoine os cionn 18 bliain d鈥檃ois a t贸gadh i dteaghlaigh a labhair Gaeilge socra铆odh gan an cheist sin a chur sa ch茅ad daon谩ireamh eile.

L茅ir铆onn an ch煤is a tugadh leis an gcinneadh sin a laghad daoine os cionn 18 bliain a t贸gadh le Gaeilge.

Bh铆 l铆on na ndaoine a d煤irt gurb 铆 an Ghaeilge teanga a dteaghlaigh agus iad ag f谩s an铆os, 1.1% , n铆os l煤 n谩 an 2.5% n谩r bhac leis an gceist a fhreagairt.

Deirtear sa tuarasc谩il d谩 mbeadh na figi煤ir铆 amhlaidh i ndaon谩ireamh ioml谩n, nach bhf茅adfa铆 figi煤ir铆 fi煤ntacha a chur ar f谩il ar bhonn 谩iti煤il gan rialacha a sh谩r煤 maidir le nochtadh faisn茅ise i staitistic铆.

Is ionann sin agus a r谩 go bhfuil a laghad sin daoine f谩sta sa st谩t a t贸gadh le Gaeilge go mbeadh s茅 ina imn铆 go n-aithneofa铆 iad d谩 nd茅anfa铆 anail铆s daon谩irimh orthu.

C煤is eile a tugadh gan an cheist 谩irithe sin a chur n谩 nach mbeadh s茅 鈥榗u铆鈥 ceist a chur sa daon谩ireamh a mbeadh an freagra c茅anna ag beagnach 99% den phobal uirthi, is 茅 sin n谩r t贸gadh le Gaeilge iad.

De r茅ir thortha铆 an tsuirbh茅 daon谩irimh ph铆ol贸taigh, n铆l aon athr煤 m贸r tagtha ar labhairt na Gaeilge i measc an phobail 贸 2016, c茅 go bhfuil m茅ad煤 beag tagtha ar l铆on na ndaoine a mha铆onn go bhfuil labhairt na Gaeilge acu. 41% de lucht freagartha an tsuirbh茅 a mha铆gh amhlaidh i gcompar谩id le 39% den phobal i nDaon谩ireamh 2016.

Maidir leis na figi煤ir铆 i dtaobh a mhinice agus a labhra铆onn daoine Gaeilge 鈥 go laeth煤il, go seachtaini煤il srl 鈥 deirtear sa tuarasc谩il go raibh an sc茅al i bhf贸mhar 2018 a bheag n贸 a mh贸r mar a bh铆 i nDaon谩ireamh 2016. Deirtear 谩fach go raibh ard煤 ar l铆on na ndaoine sa suirbh茅 n谩r bhac leis an gceist sin a fhreagairt, 2.3% in 2018 le hais 0.6% in 2016.

N铆or glacadh ach oiread le ceist eile faoin nGaeilge a cuireadh sa suirbh茅 daon谩irimh p铆ol贸tach. Cuireadh ceist faoi labhairt na Gaeilge ar gach duine i dteaghlaigh a mha铆gh gurbh 铆 an Ghaeilge a bpr铆omhtheanga.

Thug 59% de na daoine sa teaghlaigh sin a mha铆gh gurbh 铆 an Ghaeilge nach raibh aon Ghaeilge acu agus bh铆 ar a laghad duine amh谩in nach raibh Gaeilge acu i 76% de na teaghlaigh sin. Cinneadh go raibh neamhr茅ir idir na tortha铆 sin agus tortha铆 na gceisteanna eile faoin nGaeilge agus n谩r ch贸ir an cheista chur sa daon谩ireamh f茅in d谩 bharr.

Beidh ceann amh谩in de na ceisteanna nua faoin nGaeilge a cuireadh sa suirbh茅 谩 cur i nDaon谩ireamh 2021 鈥 focheist nua faoi l铆ofacht na Gaeilge.

Sa daon谩ireamh mar at谩, cuirtear ceist ar dhaoine an bhfuil Gaeilge acu agus cuirtear ceist eile faoi c茅 chomh minic is a labhra铆onn siad 铆.

Sa ch茅ad daon谩ireamh eile beidh focheist eile ann faoi labhairt na Gaeilge 鈥 鈥渃茅 chomh maith is a labhra铆onn t煤 铆?鈥. Beidh tr铆 rogha ag duine mar fhreagra ar an gceist sin 鈥榓n-mhaith鈥, 鈥榞o maith鈥 n贸 鈥榓r 茅igean鈥.

T谩 an CSO ag s煤il go gcuideoidh an cheist seo le tuiscint n铆os fearr a fh谩il 鈥渁r 煤s谩id na teanga agus l铆ofacht na teanga i measc an daonra鈥.聽

De r茅ir na tuarasc谩la bh铆 na freagra铆 ar an gceist nua faoi chumas Gaeilge f茅inmheasta ag teacht leis na freagra铆 ar na ceisteanna faoin nGaeilge a bh铆 ar an daon谩ireamh cheana.

De na daoine a mheas go raibh Gaeilge mhaith acu, thug 73% acu le fios go mb铆onn Gaeilge 谩 labhairt acu gach l谩 lasmuigh den ch贸ras oideachais. D铆obh si煤d a d煤irt nach raibh Gaeilge mhaith acu, thug 74% acu gur go hannamh a labhair siad Gaeilge taobh amuigh den ch贸ras oideachais m谩 rinne siad amhlaidh riamh.

Dhi煤ltaigh 4.4% de chainteoir铆 Gaeilge caighde谩n a gcuid Gaeilge a mheas don suirbh茅.聽

Drochsc茅al amach is amach don Ghaeilge a bh铆 i nDaon谩ireamh 2016. Idir 2011-2016 th谩inig laghd煤 suntasach ar l铆on na gcainteoir铆 laeth煤la Gaeilge lasmuigh den ch贸ras oideachais sa Ghaeltacht,.

Le linn na tr茅imhse sin, thit l铆on na gcainteoir铆 laeth煤la sa Ghaeltacht 贸 23,175 go dt铆 20,586, laghd煤 2,589 duine.

Laghd煤 11% a bh铆 i gceist i gceantair Ghaeltachta idir 2011-2016. F谩gann an m茅id sin go raibh an titim ar l铆on na gcainteoir铆 laeth煤la lasmuigh den ch贸ras oideachais i bhfad n铆os m贸 sa Ghaeltacht n谩 mar a bh铆 sa chuid eile den St谩t. Laghd煤 1% a bh铆 i gceist lasmuigh den Ghaeltacht, mar ar thit l铆on na gcainteoir铆 laeth煤la 贸 54,010 in 2011 go dt铆 53,217 duine in 2016, glanlaghd煤 de 793 duine.

Bh铆 laghd煤 i gceist i ngach ceantar Gaeltachta, ach amh谩in Port L谩irge.

Ba i Maigh Eo (-23.6%), Ciarra铆 (-18%) agus D煤n na nGall (-15.8%) a bh铆 an laghd煤 is m贸 i gceist.
