Gaelic: A vibrant living language in Ireland and Scotland
The vision of Colmcille is "a vibrant interactive Gaelic community spanning Ireland and Scotland". The organisation is named after the 6th century Saint Colum Cille. It works where the Gaelic speakers of Ireland and Scotland meet; and works to bring them together. Colmcille also promotes awareness of Gaelic language and culture: it has offices in Scotland, the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland.

Colmcille was set up in 1997 with funding from the Governments of Scotland, Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland with a remit to 'create a vibrant interactive community spanning Ireland and Scotland'.
