"The league's aims were, 'first, the preservation of Irish as the national language of the country, and its extension of its use as the spoken tongue; and second, the study and publication of existing Gaelic literature, and the cultivation of a modern literature in Irish'" (Bottigheimer 213).
The Gaelic League still has strong chapters in the U.S., which act as meeting places for those that embrace the Irish language and the literature which comes from that tongue.
The Gaelic League did succeed in keeping the Irish language around, because there are people still speaking it on a daily basis, studying it at colleges and remembering how the Irish have their own heritage and their own identity.

  Gaelic literature - Encyclopedia.com
Gaelic literature literature in the native tongue of Ireland and Scotland.
Since Scots Gaelic became separate from Irish Gaelic only in the 17th cent., the literature is conventionally divided into Old Irish (before 900), Middle Irish (until 1350), Late Middle or Early Modern Irish (until 1650), and Modern Irish and Scots Gaelic (from 1650).
Gaelic Ireland was now fighting a losing battle with England, and as the English conquered, Gaelic literature became more passionately patriotic and more militantly Catholic.

  Gaelic Traditionalism - The Mind-N-Magick Paganpedia
Gaelic Traditionalism (Traidisiúnachas Gaelach) is a cultural and religious movement dedicated to preserving the core of the indigenous culture and languages of Ireland, Scotland, and the Isle of Man as presented in the Fénechas or Brehon Laws.
Gaelic Traditionalism is a loose caste-based culture organised around a clannish or tribal sociopolitical structure, with a generally meritocratic hierarchy involving three basic classes of persons into which all of its people fall.
Gaelic Traditionalists also believe in a spiritual aspect to the world around them, including a belief in living spirits of the land, sea, sky, etc. Most of the gods of the Gael are benign or tolerant of mankind, with only a few being hostile, but none of them are viewed as “evil”.

Gaelic Resurgence and Assimilation of the Normans (1270-1484).
The cultural component of the Gaelic Resurgence is readily explainable by the fact that from the outset, the Norman lords married into Gaelic families.
The Gaelic Resurgence in culture was aided by the fact that although the Normans were pragmatic tyrants on matters of administration and government, they had no deep seated cultural roots of their own, having migrated from Scandinavia to Normandy, then to Wales and finally to Ireland, all in a period of only 150 years.

 "All creeda and all classes"? Just who made up the Gaelic League? | Eire-Ireland: a Journal of Irish Studies ...
Gaelic enthusiasts repeatedly expressed the concern that members of the legal and medical professions in particular showed little active interest in the revival.
Officers of the league and the editors of An Claidheamh Soluis repeatedly complained that members did not understand the aims of the organization, most especially its first object, which was to use Irish as a spoken language.
The terms "Irish-Irelander" and "Gaelic Leaguer" must account for those whose interest in the language was piqued enough to learn what the Irish refer to as the "cupla focal" ("few words"), but who came to see the "minor points" of the revival as of nearly equal importance to language preservation.

Matters were apparently at their lowest mark in all things national when, in 1893, the Gaelic League was organized, chiefly through the effort of Douglas Hyde and Father O'Growney, the two most accomplished Gaelic scholars in Ireland.
Gaelic is now taught in a large number of National schools, and in nearly all the Catholic Church parish schools in Ireland, the last report showing about 3500 students of Gaelic in Dublin alone.
Gaelic or Celtic chairs are also established at Harvard University, the Catholic University of America, Washington, and at Notre Dame University, Indiana.

Dunn said when the purchase was completed, the college contacted the Gaelic league and others using the fields, advising them they had until Sept. 1 of that year to make other arrangements.

Douglas Hyde with 'Eoin MacNeill and Eugene O'Growney founded the Gaelic League (Conradh na Gaeilge) in 1893 to revive the declining Irish language.
This attitude was supported and propagated by D.P. Moran in his paper, the Leader and in the Gaelic League's own publication, An Claidheamh Soluis.
The Gaelic League had a major impact on the social life of Ireland - it was responsible for giving Irish a prominent position in the national school system; from 1903 St Patrick's Day became a national holiday and the League also campaigned for bilingual street signs.

The former has claimed that the Dublin-based league was initially dominated by a coterie of "middle-class scholars and dilettantes," only to be overtaken by a lower-middle-class cabal whose narrow political aims distinguished them from the more broad-minded founders of the movement.
First, Hutchinson and Garvin base their conclusions on virtually no empirical study of league membership and therefore on the untested assumption that the social composition of the league changed after an unspecified period of time, so that frustrated lower-middle-class members preponderated.
For example, the original rosters of league branches are housed in two separate locations and display numerous weaknesses as source material.

The League was soon to develop a major role of organising, regulating and promoting Irish dancing competitions, and eventually approving those whom they deemed eligible to teach or adjudicate.
It is true that the Gaelic League introduced the notion of competition into feiseanna and oireachtaisí over 100 years ago and to this day competition remains the main driving force of Irish dancing.
The Gaelic League gave birth to its offspring, the Commission, after a seven-year gestation period (1924-1930) which took place in a spirit of co-operation between the League and the dance teachers associations.

In 1876 the Society for the Preservation of the Irish Language was formed (which was replaced by the Gaelic Union in 1879), and in 1878 Irish was finally recognised as a subject that could be taught in Intermediate Schools.
In 1893 Conradh na Gaeilge (The Gaelic League) was formed, which aimed to save the Irish language from destruction in the Gaeltacht (Irish-speaking areas), and also to restore it to areas where it had disappeared.
However The Gaelic League, helped by many eminent Celtic scholars of the day, was swift to respond, winning new status for the language.

Gaelic League president Frank Quinlivan points out that, while the event hall was added on in the 1950's, the main part of the building is over 100 years old, requiring constant upkeep.
While none of these improvements are singularly noteworthy, they add up to the continued commitment of one of Detroit's oldest ethnic organizations to the city and their Corktown neighborhood.
