What is Seachtain na Gaeilge?
Seachtain na Gaeilge is literally “Irish Language Week”. It’s a worldwide Irish Language celebration featuring events highlighting the Irish Language.
We have a Deireadh Seachtaine Gaeilge in partnership with the Fulbright Commision and Gaelchultur to accommodate those who are keenly interested. We have a Comortas Haiku Naisiunta to foster creativity and play with the language and to stimulate North American teachers. And two Irish Film nights – one in conjunction with our Irish book club (reading Cre na Cille in translation) and the other in conjunction with a local distiller who has released “Poitin” as a seasonal offering. Both film nights are designed to engage the community in a fun way, who may not be aware of the Irish language or the Gaeltachts or the rich culture linked to the language and land.
Please join us in this celebration by participating in any of the events we have for you.
