Gaelcholáistí are supported and represented on a practical day-to-day basis by Gaeloideachas based in Dublin (who also support Irish-medium schools in the Gaeltacht) and are also supported and represented by An Chomhairle um Oideachas Gaeltachta agus Gaelscolaíochta, or COGG for short.
There are 31 Gaelcholáistí and 17 second-level Aonaid Gaeilge (Irish language units) on the island of Ireland attended by over 11,000 students. A further over 3,000 pupils are receiving their second level education through Irish in the Gaeltacht.
