Speech and Language Therapy , School of Health Sciences and Acadamh na hOllscolaíochta Gaeilge have started an exciting collaboration on establishing developmental norms for native speakers of Irish with a final aim to construct language assessment tools in Irish. Being the first collaborative work of this kind in the Republic of Ireland, it attracted funding from An Chomhairle um Oideachas Gaeltachta agus Gaelscolaíochta (COGG) who provided the University with two research fellowships for students undertaking a PhD in Language Sciences. Ms. Sarah Ann-Muckley and Mr. Ciarán Lenoach have commenced their PhD studies on 1 st October under supervision of Dr. Stanislava Antonijevic and Dr. Conchúr Ó Giollagáin.
