Adrian Breathneach, Gael Taca PRO, is encouraging people of all ages and ability with the language to visit the centre.
"Whether you're fluent or only have the cúpla focal we would be delighted to have you as a Gael Taca member. The Irish language is not belong to politicians or any one organisation, it belongs to every Irish person regardless of their ability with it. We are looking for anyone interested in helping us promote the language to get in touch"

Annual individual membership is just 15 euro and an eight week course is just 85 euro both of which can be purchased at 22 Sullivan's Quay or online through PROC (no credit/laser card charges or extra admin charges!).
ALL FEES go back into promoting the Irish language.
