...de la Derry Journal:
A fascinating event aiming to introduce foreign nationals to the Irish language will take place in Derry next week.
The “Irish for the New Irish” workshop will take place in Room MI022, Aberfoyle House, on the Magee Campus of the University of Ulster on Wednesday, April 30 (10.30 am.-1 p.m.).The event - organised as part of the programme for Community Relations Week - will be hosted by Mary Delargy, a a researcher in minority ethnic communities at UU’s Academy for Irish Cultural Heritages.
She says: “Recent years have seen a large number of people choosing to make their home in our country - from the Chinese and Indian communities who settled here in the last century to the people from Eastern Europe who arrived in the last five years. This workshop aims to introduce them to the Irish language in local place names, in words we use in English and by the end of the session to a few useful phrases in Irish.”
The event is free but advance booking is essential. Those interested should contact Mary Delargy on 02871375398 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
