New Irish Language Course in Hamburg

Hamburg GAA, in cooperation with our friends at Hamburg-Irish, is proud to announce the launch of a new Irish language course in the city of Hamburg.  The course will be conducted by Hamburg GAA’s Irish Language & Cultural Officer Micheál Ó Muireagáin, a native of Belfast and longtime resident of Hamburg. Micheál has many years of experience in teaching the language both in Ireland and Germany.

The Irish language (Gaeilge) is the first official language of Ireland and an official language of the EU. As part of our drive to promote Irish culture in Germany, we are seeking to encourage a wider understanding of, and accessibility to, our native tongue.

The course, which will begin 5th September, takes place in the Celtic Cellar of our sponsor the Irish Rover and will continue every Monday until Christmas, comprising 15 units total.  Each class lasts one hour, from 18:30 to 19:30.  All levels will be catered for, so whether you are completely new to the language or took it in school and have forgotten most of it, we will provide both an introduction and refresher for you.  Higher level participants are also welcome but will be asked to help the others. Explanations in the course will be given in English and German although the focus will of course be on Irish.

The course costs €60 for the 15 units and materials will be provided.  Places are limited, so please sign-up now!  Registration ends on Wednesday 31 August. Upon registration, a course brochure will be sent to you, which contains much more information on course structure, content, etc.
