Dr. Niamh Hamill

Hello. This is a short class which explains the history of the Irish Language. Did you know that it is one of the oldest surviving languages in the world? And that it is older than the English language? Together, we'll learn about how the Irish language developed over centuries, almost disappeared, and then was resurrected! If you are thinking of learning the Irish language, this will help you to understand its rich history, and we showcase some young Irish students from Coláiste Lurgan (an Irish-speaking college) having great fun with the language.
