As we celebrate Seachtain na Gaeilge and St. Patrick’s Day, we, at PD Ceramics Ltd embrace these cultural celebrations with pride and wanted to give a little insight into what this means for us as a nation, a dental laboratory and a team.

Seachtain na Gaeilge is our Irish language week here in Ireland, a yearly International event in fact, happening 1st – 17th March 2024. It is dedicated to promoting and celebrating the Irish language and is a great opportunity to highlight the importance of our native language, which is increasingly at risk of being forgotten. This annual event shines a light on the beauty and richness of the Irish language. It encourages people to reconnect with their linguistic heritage and allows people from all over the world learn about our wonderful language.
