The Society for the Preservation of the Irish Language was founded in 1876 to gain recognition for Irish at all levels of the educational system, from primary school to university.
O'Rahilly excuses himself from attending a meeting of the "contemptible" and "crumbling" society, which he dubs "The Society for the Internment of the Irish Language". He promises to bring out its' journal in due course, relieving the Society of all responsibility for it, financial or otherwise.
