Tá Seachtain na Gaeilge Buailte Linn!

A chairde, it’s currently ‘Seachtain na Gaeilge’ and we have a very busy week in store!

First up are the TEG Information Sessions running on Tuesday and Thursday at 8:30pm (directly after the A2 and A1 classes). The aim of these brief meetings is to discuss the exams, answer questions and determine if we have sufficient numbers in the community to run both fully-accredited examinations on June 15th and 16th. If you’re thinking about sitting a TEG exam this year, please come along any night and we will try to answer whatever questions you might have. If you are unable to join us but would like to sit an exam here in DC, please get in touch and we will add your name to our list. Bígí linn ar Seachtain na Gaeilge!

On Saturday, March 16th, we are running a 1-Day Introductory Irish class just in time for St. Patrick’s Day! If you would like to learn how to introduce yourself, talk about your pastimes, numbers, etc. then be sure to register soon! Early Bird rate runs until March 12th.

Sunday, March 17th is Lá Fhéile Pádraig, and we are celebrating the big day with plenty of culture and conversation! Our choir, Cór DC, will be singing a wide variety of Irish language songs at Hoban’s in Dupont Circle, which will be followed by a Pop Up Gaeltacht…so come for the singing, stay for the craic agus comhrá! All welcome to join us and to meet the wider Irish language community in DC. You will find the Facebook Event page here.

‘Fáilte mhór’ to our many new students in the online Intro, A1 and A2 courses currently underway – tá sé iontach ar fad casadh oraibh uilig!

Please contact us if you have any questions about classes or events…agus bíodh Lá Fhéile Pádraig den chéad scoth agaibh!

10 Authentic Ways to Celebrate Irish Culture this St. Patrick’s Day

Observed around the world, St. Patrick’s Day is a chance for everyone to embrace the Irish culture, regardless of where they are or what their heritage might be. It’s a day to don yourself in green, enjoy a parade if your town has one, and grab a pint of Guinness, if you’re so inclined. However, these common activities aren’t the only tactics to “be a little Irish” on March 17th. Instead, there are plenty of opportunities to authentically delve deeper into the Irish culture. Perhaps one of the best ways to partake in the tradition of St. Patrick’s Day, and honor the Irish, is to learn a little more about them.
