Irish language students and teachers, Lausanne, November 2012

IMG_0404The Irish Language course run in Lausanne  November 2, 3, and 4, was headed up by Colette Mc Devitt,  Paddy Tracey and Roisin McLoughlin. Colette also  sings with Tale of the Gael. 18 students, 3 teachers, a great crew of helpers and musicians helped make this an enjoyable weekend which will probably be repeated at some stage.

    Hello Roisun,

    I would be interested in attending an Irish-language course.

  2. Brian, thanks for your interest, and I’ll keep you posted. Have not heard anything about the monthly classes yet from Roisin, but I’ll post it here when I do, and certainly post if we intend to plan another weekend for everyone. In the meantime, there IS a Facebook page for Switzerland for Irish speakers, set up by David Gilsenan. Slan, Catherine

    Hi Catherine, I would appreciate a link or the name of that facebook group, since it doesn’t show up in a facebook search. Cheers, Fergus.

  4. Fergus, I couldn’t locate it now either, so I’ve left David a message asking him for a link to it, which I will post here as soon as I get it.
    Quite a few people have again asked me about a second Gaelic course, so we’ll probably set something up for Switzerland. I only have Leaving Cert Irish, but I don’t mind helping out with organising. I’ll keep the page posted, and contact you as we progress!! All the best, Catherine

    Wow that is Colette from Oideas Gael School in Glencolmcille! My teacher from last year! She told me she was coming to Lausanne, to sing but not to give lessons! 🙂 Could you please let me know when other classes take place, please?
