Keywords:Language Policy, Languages Connect, Heritage Language, The New Irish
Ireland’s linguistic profile has been further enriched by the arrival of the New Irish. It is incumbent upon the higher education sector to harness and support this linguistic diversity to aid the social, cultural and economic development of Ireland and all its people. Therefore, consideration should be given to new degree programmes and to the inclusion of Language Management Strategies in existing programmes.
