Learn Irish with Armagh GAA

Armagh GAA is joining up with local Irish language community group CAIRDE Teo to offer an opportunity to those interested in Irish to learn our native tongue and to brush up on their language skills. Intensive Irish language courses will be held in the Athletic Grounds from 11am to 4pm on Saturday 14 November for beginners, intermediate and advanced levels. The cost of £10 includes lunch. Cairde Teo and Armagh GAA have held similar courses before and they have proven to be extremely popular with learners from throughout Armagh and indeed from across Ulster attending our classes. The classes have also received the backing of a number of our inter-county stars, with senior hurling goalkeeper Simon Doherty and senior footballers Charlie Vernon, Oisín Mac Íomhair and Aidan Forker attending the classes to brush up on their Irish.

Armagh GAA supports the Department of Culture’s Líofa campaign, which encourages people to sign up to a personal pledge to learn Irish. The campaign has proved a massive hit and having reached its target of attracting 10,000 learners to sign up for Irish lessons, has now expanded and aims to attract 20,000 Irish language learners by the year 2020. At present, 14,500 people have already signed up to the Líofa pledge. For more information on the intensive Irish course or other Irish classes in Armagh or to book a place in one of the classes, contact Seán on sean@cairdeteo.com or 028 3751 5229.
