The new term of Irish language classes at Cumann Gaelach Chnoc na Rós in St Anne’s primary school begins next week.
Classes will resume in the school on Tuesday evening at 7.30pm and the group have said that new members are welcome.
Micheál Mac Mhaongail from Cumann Gaelach Chnoc na Rós encouraged anyone interested in learning Irish to come along to the classes. “If your New Year’s resolution is to learn a new language then why not come along to Cumann Gaelach Chnoc na Rós and make it happen.
“At Cnoc na Rós we operate a relaxed, learner-led approach to teaching the language. It is based mainly on conversational Irish and we encourage people to speak as much as possible, but also involves reading and grammar.
“Those who come to our classes will hear Irish spoken by teachers and cumann members who are passionate about promoting the language in a way that includes everyone and excludes no-one, ” he said.
He also encouraged anyone who may have learned Irish at school to reacquaint themselves with the language. “People are always surprised at how quickly it comes back to them, ” he added.
Classes are held from 7.30 to 8.45pm in St Anne’s Primary School every Tuesday evening and cost £3 per night.
