Dia Duit!

As a student of Irish (I am taking a beginners class with Colleen Dollard in Washington, D.C.) I find it challenging but fun. As a writer, I find it even more fascinating.

I am writing an feature article about the revival of the Irish language, specifically in the U.S. and other countries outside of Ireland, and am looking for people to interview. I am interested in both people who have an Irish heritage and those who do not.

If you are interested please post a note or e-mail me at It would be helpful to just have a paragraph or so in your response about why you are learning (or have already learned) Irish Gaelic. I will then use the responses to contact people about possible interviews.

I will be out of town in early March, but please still feel free to contact me. I will get back to people as soon as I return. Many thanks in advance.
