Poster - Wed 2nd MayThis new venture is to provide a fun, engaging and enjoyable way to practice, brush up or learn Irish in a relaxed and friendly way.  The evenings will be an informal format and will cater for all levels and beginners as well.  The evenings will concentrate on developing everyday conversational skills rather than grammar.  It is planned to have 3 evenings before the summer.  Future evenings might include learning Irish through walks, meals and social occasions.
