Snapchat filters as Gaeilge are coming soon to a device near you

Conradh na Gaeilge has launched "Gaelsnap"

Conradh na Gaeilge has announced the launch of Gaelsnap, a competition to create Snapchat Geofilters in Irish for every county in Ireland. The best filters will be chosen to represent each county, and all you have to do is create a filter using a county’s placename as Gaeilge.

Aodhán Ó Deá, Director of Development with Conradh na Gaeilge says:

“We here in Conradh na Gaeilge are extremely excited to launch this initiative after first suggesting the idea to Snapchat only a few weeks ago. It is clear that Irish people love using Snapchat - per capita we use it more than any other country - so why not celebrate our placenames as Gaeilge while taking a selfie!”

Anybody can enter the Gaelsnap competition by emailing their artwork to before Friday, 19 August 2016.
