Keltalingva Konferenco en Nov-Jorko la blogo, From the Balcony, de Máirtín Ó Muilleoir:

Of course, turns out Ireland's greatest academics and writers are now nearly all linked to US universities and it's often in those same colleges that the most important research on Ireland's politics and literature is taking place.

I'm reminded of that fact by this not about the annual convention in New York of Celtic Language teachers. The explosion of Irish classes across the US is one of the phenomenal cultural developments of our age and it's no surprise to me that Daithí Mac Lochlainn of New York is at the forefront of the latest initiative to bring the teachers of the Celtic languages together.

The 2009 Conference of the North American Association of Celtic Language Teachers (NAACLT) will be held May 20-24, 2009 at The New York City Irish Center (10-40 Jackson Ave, Long Island City, New York).
Perhaps someday, we'll catch up with those 'backward' Yanks and host our own annual Belfast convention of Celtic teachers.
