Arizona Irish-learners fundraising to study in Ireland

~ Saturday, May 6, 2017

A group that studies Irish language is trying to raise money to go to Ireland for classes. At least two members are Tucson Irish dancers. They have asked me to post this request:

Aiséirí (ash-eye-ree) is an active group of Irish Language Learners based in Arizona. Our current mission is to create opportunity for study under the direction of highly qualified instructors in Ireland. In order to demonstrate how dedicated we are to studying the language, we are willing to walk to Ireland. As a group we are tracking our daily miles and plan to walk the distance from our homes to Ireland, 4982 miles. We are working hard to achieve our goal of attending two Irish schools, one week each, in October 2017.
The first school, Oideas Gael, founded in 1984, is an Irish language cultural center in Glencolmcille, County Donegal specializing in adult Irish language education. The founding directors, Liam Ó Cuinneagáin and Professor Seosamh Watson are both internationally known for their innovative approaches to language learning.
The second school, Feicim, is founded and managed by Bríd Ní Chualáin, who holds a NUIG Masters degree in extensive Irish language studies as well as a NUIM Diploma in teaching Irish to adults.

Be part of our adventure, please consider contributing towards our journey. Even a little bit gets us closer.
