IRISH LANGUAGE IMMERSION – GAELTACHT AN OILEÁIN ÚIR

About this Event

The North American Gaeltacht is a 60-acre piece of property near Kingston, Ontario, being developed as a permanent home for the Irish Language. The property is owned by the landholder’s cooperative (Comharchumann Sealbhóirí na Gaeltachta). Programs and site management are carried out by Cumann na Gaeltachta. This weekend is built around the AGMs for both these organizations. All events on Friday and Sunday are free. Tickets may be purchased for lunch ($10) and supper ($25) on Saturday. There is also a charge for the entertainment and céilí on Saturday night ($10). Camping on site may be coordinated through Aralt Mac Giolla Chainnigh (aralt@gaeilge.ca).
