Lá na Gaeilge: Irish Language Day
The ICC is sponsoring our fourteenth Irish language immersion day, Lá na Gaeilge, on the Elms campus. It is a unique opportunity for those with an interest in the language - beginners and those with varying levels of competence - to deepen their knowledge and appreciation of this vital component of Irish culture.
Lá na Gaeilge begins with registration at 8:30 am and continues throughout the day with language classes and workshops, including set dancing, Irish films, and conversation groups. Consul General Breándan Ó Caollaí of the Boston Irish Consulate, an enthusiastic and fluent Gaeilgeoír, will attend and provide an address. It concludes with a seisiún at about 5:00 pm. The cost for ICC members is $40 and for non-members is $50. The cost for college-age and under students is $15. The price includes coffee, tea and light refreshments throughout the day and a generous luncheon.
We hope that as many as possible will support our effort and participate. For further information contact Ellen Dziura at the ICC (413) 265-2537 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also download a registration form.
Thanks to the Chicopee Cultural Council for their support.
