Irish Language

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