Irish College

Exciting new Irish summer college in Glenamaddy C.S.


Coláiste Néifinn is a newly founded Irish summer college in Glenamaddy  Community School  for 12 to 18-year-olds. This college aims to bring life to our native language outside the Gaeltacht. The co-ordinators are two local Irish teachers and they will be assisted by experienced teachers from other schools. All the teachers have taught in several Gaeltacht colleges, so they can bring a lot of experience to Coláiste Néifinn.The course will run from July 9th-20th inclusive in Glenamaddy Community School.

From 2012 onwards students will receive 40 per cent of the total marks for their oral Irish examination. This is an exciting prospect for all Irish enthusiasts. According to the organisers the best way to learn a language is to be actively involved in it in a fun way. Classes, sports, music, dancing, a tour and other activities will feature in the Coláiste.The days will be action packed from 10am to 5pm.

Due to popular demand, this course in G.C.S is now full for summer 2012.
