A Brief History of the Irish Language

A Brief History of the Irish Language

Join Santiago Rial for a whistle-stop tour through the origins, characteristics and story of ‘An Ghaeilge’! We will begin with the first proto-Gaelic speakers, to the development of Old and Middle Irish in the Middle Ages, to its zenith, decline and rebirth. This is just the presentation we need as our new term of daily Irish courses begins in earnest!

Santiago Rial is an Argentinian-born independent researcher of Irish history, mythology, heritage and language. Based in beautiful Sliabh na Caillí (Loughcrew, Co. Meath), he works to facilitate ease of access to historical facts and a better understanding of how Ireland became who she is now. Be sure to check out his article, A Brief History of the Irish Language.

A recording of this workshop will be available afterwards for Subscribers, via our Archive.
