Volunteer opportunities
We want to continue to offer high quality Irish Language events and need your help to do so. There are many opportunities to get involved. The ICC Board has a language subcommittee. Its role is to raise funds, develop the annual language day, and identify other avenues to reach the community. Please contact Gerald Costello if you would like to be involved.
