An Chuallacht (English: The Fellowship)is the Irish language Society of University College Cork. Founded in 1906, an Chuallacht is one of the largest societies in U.C.C. and one of the largest Irish language societies in the Country.

The society’s main aim is the promotion of the Irish language on campus and around Cork city. The Chuallacht meets twice weekly, in a pub and in the Seomra Caidrimh of the O Rahilly Building on campus, to encourage the speaking of Irish amongst the student body. During the year, the society organises mystery tours, takes weekend trips to the Gaeltacht, takes part in Seachtain na Gaeilge and publishes the Chuallacht magazine, ‘Craic’. One of the most important events in the an Chuallacht calendar is Spraoi Cois Laoi, an annual festival held in the final week of November. Amongst the events organised during Spraoi Cois Laoi are competitions, debates, parades, games and the Irish Ball, ‘An Céilí Mór’.
