Irish Language

I started teaching Irish after having moved to New York. I already had a strong and positive relationship with the language due primarily to my extended family's connection to the Gaeltacht and I was anxious to maintain this link to my heritage albeit in New York. Shortly after moving a friend and I established a conversation circle called Baicle Chomhrá. Before long I was asked to teach Irish in the education program of a cultural organization in Westchester County, NY.
