Irish Language Night | The Cottage Irish Pub

  • The Cottage Irish Pub 1385 Highland Avenue Melbourne, FL, 32935 United States (map)

Local Irish historian, Austin Rushnell, will be hosting a talk on the Irish language at The Cottage on July 16th at 6pm, for all those interested in learning a little bit about the Irish culture and our native language.

Austin Rushnell studied the Irish language in University College Cork during his Master’s degree in 2016; afterwards, he moved to a Gaeltacht in County Kerry where he developed conversational Irish skills with local residents. In 2018, Austin undertook a four-month sabbatical in the grammatical study of Old & Middle Irish at the National University of Ireland, Galway.

Austin has been teaching an Irish language class in the Snug at The Cottage for the past few months and it's almost time to start classes up again. Interested? Sign up through Eventbrite and join us at the talk (tickets are free). There will be a chance to sign up for upcoming classes after the talk. LINK

Classes will resume the following week (July 23rd) and will run weekly on:

Tuesdays from 6pm till 7.30pm
Thursdays from 7pm till 8.30pm
Sundays from 2pm - 3.30pm.

We are accepting 12 students for each class. For more information, message The Cottage Irish Pub Facebook page. Go raibh míle maith agaibh!
