An Ghaeilge Bheo / The Living Language

The launch event on February 7th will include conversation and music from members of the Celtic rock band KILA. A series of three other events are planned for Semester 2.

The events provide an opportunity for both students and staff to hear and/or use the language in an informal environment.

The Library contribution includes: providing the space for the events, providing design work and publicity channels, working with the students on preparing a Powtoon animation and on guest posts on the Library blog.
