Gaeilge ‘Irish’ Language Of The Gael
The Irish language “Gaeilge” is the daily spoken language by the people who live and work in the Gaeltacht regions.
Language and landscape in the Connemara Gaeltacht reflects the accumulated wisdom of past generations.
“This is a one-of-a-kind class with a one-of-a-kind teacher. Paraic is a master of both the language and the culture and can’t help but teach both.”
I am inextricably linked to this wisdom, culture and landscape. Three Generations of Irish speakers living together under one roof, the Irish language was alive and well. I am an unbroken chain of blood stretching right back to my ancient ancestors.
My vision is to ensure aspiring Irish speakers from all over the world can help the language take its rightful place as one of the worlds greatest languages. Practice and improve your fluency with a native speaker.
