Gleann Cholm Cille

I’m off to Gleann Cholm Cille in Dongal in the northwest of Ireland later today. I’m going there for the Scoill Shamhraidh i dTeanga agus Cultúr (Language & Culture Summer School) at Oideas Gael, a week of speaking and singing in Irish, seeing old friends and making new ones, listening to and playing music, and enjoying the wonderful scenery of Columba’s magical glen. The craic will be mighty and I’m really looking forward to it.

While I’m there I’ll probably have limited access to the web and email, so posts on this blog might become somewhat sporadic.

  1. I remember when you posted that message a few years ago and I read it the night before going – it was great to have met you there! Wish I was joining you again this year – lovely to see you make it so regularly 🙂

    Tell the usual crowd I said hi!

    Enjoy yourself, it’s great to hear that the Irish have these sorts of things to encourage the perpetuation of their language, it didn’t use to be that way.

    Do they only hold these courses in the summer months?

    Tommy – the Irish language courses run from the end of March to the end of August, and there is also an Irish language weekend course in October.
