Michael McCaughan, author of Coming Home: One man’s return to the Irish language will give a free workshop at the library in Kildare town on Wednesday, March 21 next at 7pm.

This is a kickstarter workshop for anyone who is thinking about coming back to the Irish language or learning it for the first time, with those in attendance finding out more about the Irish language and developing their own knowledge of the Irish language.

This workshop will start off with a background talk about the Irish language, how Irish people lost it and how we might go about getting it back.

The main focus of the workshop is that it will provide participants with a quick ‘Instant Irish’ class which will give them some Irish vocabulary to take away with them along with a needs analysis of how they might improve their Irish language knowledge into the future.

All levels of Irish — and those with no Irish — are welcome.

Expressions of interest in a ‘Ciorcal Comhrá’ will be taken on the night.

The libary will close on Friday March 16 at 5pm for St. Patrick’s Weekend and will reopen on Tuesday March 2-at 2pm. The library will also close for Easter March 29at 8pm and reopen on April 3.
