Gaelchultúr’s spring programme of online Irish classes will start in the first week of February. And no matter where you are in the world, you can take part!
You’re welcome to this month’s edition of Gaelchultúr’s newsletter!
Earlier this year, acclaimed Irish novelist Louise O’Neill decided to return to the Irish language and undertake a course with Gaelchultúr. Nuachtlitir Ghaelchultúir spoke to her recently to find out what motivated her to learn Irish again and to find out what she thought about the course.
Éamonn Ó Dónaill has been working as Director of Education with Gaelchultúr since 2005 and has been involved with the Postgraduate Diploma in Translation since that course began in 2013. Nuachtlitir Ghaelchultúir recently spoke to him to find out more about his life and his experience of teaching Irish.
A few days after President Michael D. Higgins launched Foras na Gaeilge’s new dictionary, Concise English–Irish Dictionary, Gaelchultúr’s Director of Education, Éamonn Ó Dónaill, conducted a live online interview about the project with two of the dictionary team. The video of this in-depth discussion is still available and well worth watching.
Comhrá le Cathal: Novels Reviewed, which will take place from 1.00pm this Sunday, 6 December, is well worth attending. This online event is presented by IMRAM as part of the Dublin Book Festival, and Cathal Póirtéir, writer and broadcaster, will welcome three knowledgeable guests from the world of literature to review some new novels.
