If you have been saying to yourself for years that you should learn Irish but never really got around to getting there, now is your chance, with a Newry course beginning in September. The course organised by Gaelaras Mhic Ardghail will lead you towards getting a silver Fáinne.

Registration for the Fáine Airgid takes place on Saturday 7 September 12 - 1pm and 1.30 - 2pm on a double decker bus in Marcus Square, Newry at Iúr Cinn Fleadh.

Classes start 23 September but those who register are invited to meet for the first time on Oíche Chultúir (Culture Night) on 20 September for a fascinating and enjoyable linguistic journey linking our knowledge an Ghaeilge with other Celtic languages and with Ulster/ Scots English.

What's stopping You?

 If you need a challenge to motivate your learning of Irish. If you can commit, with other interested adult learners, for three terms.

 Are you up for the challenge of a formal Gaelic League spoken test?

Do you want to learn in a dedicated, fully-resourced Irish Language setting?

Do you require the support of a professional, experienced tutor?

... Well just get onboard the big green bus at the Iúr Cinn Fleadh Pop Up Gaeltacht on Saturday 7 September and enrol for the Fáine Airgid course.
