First pop up Gaeltacht evening in Ark­low

Wicklow People (West Edition) - - NEWS -

ARK­LOW will play host to its first ever pop-up Gaeltacht on Satur­day, August 31. The event will bring Ir­ish speak­ers of ev­ery level to­gether in the up­stairs of The Gin Mill from 8 p.m.

The idea of a pop up Gaeltacht is to have a group of peo­ple to the re­laxed en­vi­ron­ment of a pub where they can have con­ver­sa­tions in Ir­ish, what­ever their level of pro­fi­ciency or con­fi­dence with the lan­guage. Pop up Gaeltacht events run in Dublin city, where they have proven to be pop­u­lar.

‘It’s a mo­bile Gaeltacht. Up­stairs [at The Gin Mill], there will be a con­gre­ga­tion of peo­ple speak­ing Ir­ish in a pub,’ said Aoife Ní Chéileacha­ir.

The event is a col­lab­o­ra­tion be­tween Glór na nGael An Inbhir Mhóir and Gael­cholaiste na Mara. Past stu­dents are en­cour­aged to at­tend and all are wel­come.
