Ireland

Study Irish in Connemara, Ireland

Photo of Connemara, Ireland

Description:

Connemara, County Galway, is a place of wild beauty. On the west coast of Ireland, north of the Aran Islands, lies the village of An Cheathrú Rua (Carraroe). The village is an important rural center in the Connemara Irish-speaking region. Buffered on all sides by other Irish-speaking areas, mountains, and water, An Cheathrú Rua exists in a region where the Irish language continues to be the community language spoken in homes and in shops.

An Cheathrú Rua has several beaches that serve the village including a coral beach known as "Trá an Dóilín." The National University of Ireland, founded in 1845, serves over 15,000 students. Its "Acadamh na hOllscolaíochta Gaeilge" (Irish Language University Academy) serves native Irish speakers and students of Irish at satellite campuses in different Irish-language villages. The CUNY Irish language classes will be held at the An Cheathrú Rua facility, which is called "Áras Mháirtín Uí Chadhain"(The Máirtín Ó Cadhain Building). Students live with local Irish speaking families and receive their meals from the families as well. In addition to Irish language classes, students will also be able to participate in social activities and cultural lectures.
