Ranafast Gaeltacht in Donegal fights Irish language decline

One of the foremost Irish-speaking (Gaeltacht) communities in Ireland is vowing to protect the future of the Irish language.

The Ranafast Gaeltacht in west Donegal is home to hundreds of visiting Irish language students from Northern Ireland each summer.

The latest generation of students have come to the college this summer against the backdrop of an official report earlier this year, that suggested Irish will no longer be the primary language in any Gaeltacht community in 10 years.

BBC News NI's Kevin Sharkey visited the college to speak to current students.
