Brían Ó hAirt is a native of Saint-Louis, Missouri, who was introduced to Irish in his early teens. He quickly became a dedicated student of the language, which led him to study Irish at UW-Milwaukee's Center for Celtic Studies as well as at the University of Limerick's Irish World Music Center and the National University of Ireland-Galway, where he spent two summers immersed in the language of the Conamara Gaeltacht. Upon returning to the States, he began teaching Irish for the Saint-Louis branch of Cumann na Gaeilge and as well as for prestigious Washington University. He has subsequently led language workshops and taught at various immersion programs throughout the United States. He is no stranger to the tight-knit language communities both here in the US and abroad in Ireland and remains an advocate for Gaeltacht culture and, in particular, sean-nós singing and dancing.
Gaeltacht Cascadia is an informal yet rigorous study group that meets three times a month in the Portand-Vancouver area for Irish study and conversation practice.

There is a saying in Irish: Tír gan teanga, tír gan anam (A country without a language is a country without a soul). Language is central to culture and by learning the Irish language you will derive valuable insight into all aspects of Irish culture.
