Why Study Irish?

Why Study Irish?

Studying the Irish language is a critical component for understanding the history, literature, and culture of Ireland.  An ancient and living language of Europe, Irish has experienced a resurgence in the number of speakers in recent decades.  This vibrant language will be taught by a native speaker from Ireland, who will be teaching at Villanova every year through the Fulbright FLTA program.


The Irish Language Conversation Circle meets with local Irish speakers on Monday evenings in Falvey library.
