La Irlandalingvo en Georgio la Rome News-Tribune:

Children were dancing the jig to the end of their summer vacation this week at the Irish Culture Camp run by local dance teacher Barbara Joyce.

The camp, held at Shorter College, was not just about dancing and music, but gave the more than 20 children who attended the camp a look at the history and culture of Ireland. Though they had a only week to cover a culture that spans thousands of years in tradition, Joyce said the children got much out of the experience…

…The campers also showed off some of their newly honed language skills for their parents by speaking Gaelic for the crowd and counting to 20 in the Irish language.

For Joyce, who hails from Ireland herself, the camp is not nearly enough time to teach the campers everything that they could learn about Ireland….
