Newry Branch of the Gaelic League will run a single-session Introduction to the Irish Language course next month, May, in the Chapel Street Gaeláras.  The course will suit especially those whose background (perhaps educational, religious, cultural, political, national) has meant that they have had no opportunity, or previous inclination, to encounter Irish.  

The course is free and light refreshments will be provided. It will be facilitated by an experienced educationalist.  Tá an cúrsa saor in aisce agus cuirfear ar fáil sólaistí éadroma. Oideachasóir cáilithe a bhfuil taithí aige a bhéas i mbun rudaí.

Alternatively, the Introduction to Irish course can be booked by established societies, community organisations or church groups who prefer to run the session at their own venues on agreed dates in June.  Tá fáilte roimh chách.
