Short course in Irish Gaelic being offered
The Benevolent Irish Society is sponsoring a short course in the Irish language this month.
The course will serve as an introduction and overview of the language and how it works. No prior experience is necessary.
Classes will be held on Mondays and Thursdays, 7-9 p.m., beginning Nov. 13 and ending on Nov. 30, for a total of six sessions.
Cormac O Feinneadha, who is from Ireland and is a fluent Irish speaker, will serve as the course instructor. He currently teaches at UPEI.
