I'm a 42 year old American of Irish descent from my father's side, and started teaching myself Irish about a month ago. I took a short class a few years ago, but remembered very little. I'd like to correspond with a beginner, so that we can encourage each other. I've studied primarily Romance languages until now, so Irish will definitely be a fun challenge.
The cultural and language program in Gleann Cholm Cille looks interesting to me, and I would love to hear from anyone who has attended.

I attended a course i nGleann Cholm Cille when I had only a few words of Irish - I was there for the language & culture week - without a doubt I enjoyed myself immensely, with hill climbing, dancing & the nightly goings on. And it was wonderful to be surrounded by the language, although most of it was over my head at that point.
I say go for it . . .

Your attitude seems to be very positive, Bob.
Go mbaine tú sult as do chuid ruathar faoin teanga -
May you enjoy your futere forays into the language.
It won't be the first ruathar of an Ó Cléirigh in that direction. There were many, from which the language has had great benefit.
