A chairde, we have some exciting events coming up!

Our Monthly Meetups take place on the first Wednesday of every month, which means our next social bash will be on May 6th! We’ll be screening an Irish movie in Friendship Heights, and you can find out further details and let us know you’re coming via our Meetup page. Always promises to be a good time… and speaking of good times, if you haven’t seen our pics from last month’s Oíche Chluichí / Games Night Meetup, then get yourself over to our Facebook page and have a browse!

EU Open Day will be taking place on May 9th at the Irish Embassy! We will have a display again this year for what should be a super busy, super fun day! If you’re interested in being a volunteer and schmoozing at the Irish Embassy for a few hours, then please add your name to our Volunteer Schedule…tá tú de dhíth orainn / we need YOU!

Upcoming Ranganna: The final term of classes before the summer break will begin on May 14th. Intermediate Rang 2 with Elaine and Ard Rang classes with Justin will both run on Thursday May 14, 21, 28, Jun 4, 11, 18 (6 weeks) from 7:00 – 8:15pm. Early Bird registration remains open until Apr 30th. Our next 1-Day Introductory Intensive with Ronan will take place on Sunday, June 28th 2015. Additional details on all classes can be found on our website.

Finally, ‘comhghairdeas‘ to one of our Ard Rang students, Kate Brinkely, who was recently awarded a Fulbright grant to study in the Irish Gaeltacht this summer! Kate has been attending Irish classes for a number of years, and is now very excited at the prospect of using her ‘cúpla focal’ in Ireland. This is the third year in a row that one of our students has been selected to travel, and we are very proud indeed – maith sibh uilig! We look forward to Kate’s photos agus scéalta from her trip abroad…
