Daltaí na Gaeilge - February Weekend!

Daltaí's February Irish language weekend starts this Friday evening Feb 12th and runs until 1 PM on Sunday.  The Teacher's Workshop progam follows at 3 PM and continues until 1 PM Monday.  Eithne Ní Ghallchobhair from Dun na nGall is doing the teacher's program and has already climbed on the plane as I am posting this!  Don't miss a great learning weekend.  There is still time to register on the Daltaí website: and check under Events. 

You can attend the Teacher's Workshop even if you don't teach.  The best thing an Irish language student can do is spend a relaxed and friendly weekend with Irish speakers.

Bígí linn!!
