Lá na Gaeilge: Irish Language Day – May 4

On May 4, the Irish Cultural Center is sponsoring our eighteenth Irish language immersion day, Lá na Gaeilge, at Elms College in Chicopee, MA. Beginners and those with varying levels of competence have the opportunity deepen their knowledge and appreciation of this vital component of Irish culture. As well as formal classes, there are workshops (céilí dancing, film), and cómhrás (conversation). A lecture, The Irish Language and the discourses of colonisation and decolonisation, will be given by Kerron Ó Luain, Villanova FLTA. We conclude with a seisiún with an opportunity for participants to display their musical talents. Registration begins at 8:30 am and the day concludes at about 5:00 pm.

The cost is $50 per person, $45 for ICC Patrons, and $15 for college-age and under students (due by May 1).
