On May 5, the ICC is sponsoring our seventeenth Irish language immersion day, Lá na Gaeilge. 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.

As well as formal classes, Lá na Gaeilge consists of workshops (céilí dancing, film), and cómhrás (opportunities for conversation and dialog at the learner’s appropriate level). A lecture, "Beyond the Wild Atlantic Way: West Kerry Oral Tradition" will be given by Seaghan Mac an tSionnaigh, Notre Dame FLTA. Lá na Gaeilge concludes in 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. The price includes lunch and refreshments throughout the day. Registrations are due by May 1.
