Irish Language Day

26 April 2013

On 18 May, the Department of Culture and Media will hold its sixth annual Irish Language Day at Marylhurst University.

Bob Burke, Marylhurst Irish instructor and vice-president of the North American Association for Celtic Language Teachers, will be at the language celebration. Read his blog entry on Irish at “Irish as an endangered language,” where he talks about a family receiving a stipend to raise their children in Irish and cites census statistics about Irish (gle) use in Ireland.
