Irish Language Classes

In cooperation with Elms College, the Irish Cultural Center is pleased to offer a range of Irish classes for the 2021/2022 academic year. In addition, this partnership is again successful in bringing to campus our twelfth consecutive Irish Fulbright Foreign Language Teaching Assistant, Réaltín McElhinney.

Réaltín Nic Giolla Chainnigh (Mc Elhinney), from Inis Eoghan, Donegal. Réaltín attended the University of Ulster. In addition to her love of the Irish language, she has a keen interest in Gaelic football. She is an accomplished athlete who has played on her local club, school, and university teams. She is looking forward to sharing her knowledge of the Irish language and Gaelic football with the ICC community.

*All Irish classes will be taught remotely via Zoom.* Details to be provided once enrolled. To enroll for classes, please download the registration form. All classes are non-credit. ICC Patrons receive a $50 discount. Please send in your registration by August 31.
