Classes in the Irish Language

The class provides a great environment for learning the language, picking up conversation pieces and above all an outlet to use what you know. A primary goal of the class is to make Irish a living breathing language. Every week, the students get to practice their Irish in real conversations with each other where making mistakes is OK. Our aim is to balance an understanding of the mechanics and history of the language with the development of Irish as a functional language among the group.


Beginner Class Saturdays 1pm

Advanced Beginner Class Thursdays 6pm

Cost $10 per class
