This article examines how the progress of the Irish language revival has been infused with considerations of temporality, particularly as manifested in literature and in the discourse surrounding native tradition. The discussion draws on Gilles Deleuze's reinterpretation of the work of Henri Bergson on time and memory, and of the Nietzschean notion of the 'eternal return.'
