What do a pirate queen born in the 1500’s, and a contemporary hip hop trio from Belfast have in common? Irish, An Ghaeilge. 

Irish is one of the oldest living languages in Europe, despite its decline in the 19th century due to famine and colonial rule. It is a Celtic language, related to Scots Gàidhlig and Manx. 

The Irish language has, and continues to be fite fuaite, intertwined, with colonial resistance, Irish history, a distinct Irish artistic expression and visions for the future. 

1-1 classes (10 sessions of 1 hour) are suitable for beginners and intermediate learners and will be prepared according to the students needs and interests. 

The course will be taught by Em Ó Ceallaigh (/Ball). Em is a language educator and theatre-maker.  Em is from Dublin and the first person to speak Irish in their family. Em's passion for the Irish language developed by attending and working in the Gaeltacht. Em now creates theatre as Gaeilge or bilingually and has facilitated storytelling workshops in Irish (and the other languages spoken), to encourage playfulness and new relationships with language. Em completed the CELTA teaching training for teaching English. Em is interested in exploring how shame around languages and learning impact playful and contemporary speaking of Irish.
