Irish classes at An Chultúrlann

Coláiste an Phobail has launched its new series of Irish language classes at Cultúrlann Uí Chanáin, Great James’ Street.

Classes are being offered to suit all levels of learners from complete beginners to fluent speakers.

Ciara Nic Lochlainn, Education Coordinator at the centre, said; “There were over 230 adults learning Irish in the Cultúrlann last year on a weekly basis at a variety of levels and I would encourage anyone in the city who is thinking about learning Irish or who is just curious about what it involves to contact us here at the Cultúrlann.

“Courses focus mainly on speaking the language, and many students attain a reasonable level of spoken Irish every year.

“Reaching a certain level of fluency in Irish is a challenge that can be met with the assistance of the qualified and experienced teachers and excellent range of resources for learners found at Cultúrlann Uí Chanáin.

“Anyone who comes to the centre to learn Irish can hear the language being used on a daily basis whether in a work setting or in a social setting, which adds to the whole learning process,” she said.

The 2010-2011 Coláiste an Phobail Prospectus is available online or at the centre and outlines all classes including guidelines for appropriate course selection.

Courses are offered at different times to accommodate particular needs, with classes running in the morning, afternoon and evening four days per week.


A registration day will be held on Wednesday September 7th between 10am and 4pm in An Chultúrlann. For more information contact Fiachra on or telephone 7126 4132.
