Bliain Úr Mhaith Daoibh Go Léir [Happy New Year] and with a new year comes new goals!!
CAIRDE Teo, Armagh City’s largest, Irish language social enterprise has just announced another a full programme of face-to-face Irish language classes will be delivered again this year in the spacious, well-ventilated, and hygienic surroundings of Cultúrlann Aonach Mhacha.
Since 2010 CAIRDE has been providing evening lessons and intensive courses to people from all age groups and community backgrounds. With a variety of different levels and learning options available, we’re sure to have a course that meets your specific language needs.
Whether you have no previous knowledge of the language, have a few words or are on the road to fluency, you are welcome to take part in the classes or in some of the conversation groups or book clubs we have available at Cultúrlann Aonach Mhacha.
Learning a language has been proved to enhance cognitive function and mental health. It’s also an enjoyable way to socialise and meet new friends. Interest in the Irish language in Armagh is at an all- time high, with a young, confident, and vibrant Irish speaking community in the city.
More and more social and employment opportunities are opening for Irish speakers both in Ireland and in Europe and demand for places at Irish medium pre-schools and primary schools also continues to grow apace across Armagh, Keady, Lurgan, Crossmaglen and Portadown.
So, whatever your reason for wanting to learn Irish, dust off those January blues and register now via the website.
Each course lasts ten weeks and will commence the week beginning January 23, 2023. The fee for the full ten-week course is £40 waged and £30 unwaged. Payment can be made online or by paying at the Cultúrlann reception.
Courses consist of one face-face class each week (7pm – 8.30pm) with our professionally qualified Irish language teachers who are fully equipped with all the resources to start or continue your journey with the Irish language.
Watch out also for our quarterly ‘Díanchúrsaí’ or all-day intensive learning courses. The first one of 2023 will be delivered during ‘Seachtain na Gaeilge’ on Saturday March 11, in Cultúrlann Aonach Mhacha.
Is le gach duine an Ghaeilge!
