An Múinteoir Gaeilge Thú?

LetsLearnIrish-1Traditionally, ’An Timire Gaeilge’ was a person who would travel around Ireland (usually by bicycle) teaching and nurturing the use of Irish among people with their help and co-operation. Here in Washington DC we are seeking our own Irish language advocate, our own ‘An Timire DC’! Is féidir tuilleadh eolais a fháil faoi dhualgais an róil,
