Give Des Bishop A Run For His Money!

Conradh na Gaeilge is organising three intensive Irish language courses for the summer in response to the great interest currently being taken in the language. Starting on 10 June 2008, the courses are directed at everyone looking to improve their cúpla focal as well as complete newcomers looking to follow Des Bishop's good example and learn Irish from scratch.

Each course will run for three weeks and Conradh na Gaeilge has organised one per month to satisfy the large demand this year. The dates for each course are as follows:

  • 10 - 26 June 2008
  • 08 - 24 July 2008
  • 05 - 21 August 2008

Three-hour classes will be held two nights a week (Tuesdays and Thursdays) between 7.00 and 10.00pm.

Various levels will accommodate every Gaeilgeoir in the city, regardless of their current language fluency, with classes focused on people interested in Irish but without any previous knowledge of the language, as well as those with a little Irish looking to refresh their memories.

There will also be classes available for good Irish speakers who want to improve their pronunciation, grammar, common phrases and vocabulary in addition to classes for people who simply need to build up their confidence to speak it.

There will be a total of four levels to choose from for each course:

  • Complete Beginners
  • Bunrang
  • Meánrang
  • Ardrang 

Each course costs €170 and you can contact Brenda Ní Ghairbhí / Máire Ní Dhuiginn at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or by calling Conradh na Gaeilge on 01 4757401 for more information and to book your place.
