The country’s oldest Irish-language organisation, Conradh na Gaeilge, will launch a series of ten-week Irish classes for adults in Dublin, Ennis, Galway, Loughrea, Limerick, Mayo and in other centres next week. The classes cater for complete beginners to those who are fluent and the syllabus is based on Teastas Eorpach na Gaeilge (The European Certificate for Irish), giving students the chance to sit exams under the auspices of NUI Maynooth and gain a recognised qualification. Each course costs €200 with a discount price of €180 for unemployed, students and senior citizens. A full list of courses is to be found on CnaG’s web site.
