Fáilte romhat! Welcome to Gaeltacht Minnesota!

Slán le Wes

All of us at Gaeltacht Minnesota are saddened to learn of the passing of our long time instructor Wes recently. Wes had put in many years helping students learn to speak and learn to love the Irish language, and he never delivered a lesson without a good helping of humor. For Wes and his many students over the years, learning and laughter went together. He will be deeply missed.

Want to start learning Irish? Want to polish up your Irish language skills?

Sign up for the Deireadh Seachtaine Gaeilge -- that is, the Irish language weekend workshop -- at the Celtic Junction in St. Paul, April 12-24. Five levels will be taught, you can choose your own level and move if your first choice doesn't quite fit your needs. Go to Deireadh Seachtaine Gaeilge for details about the agenda, the instructors, and lots more information. Weekend fee is $175 for in-person sessions (some levels are also available as remote sessions). Get all your questions answered here.

General Announcements

Have you been studying on your own and are looking for a beginner-level study group?

Or perhaps wanting to get back into a weekly Irish language setting? Our beginner group has been meeting virtually through the pandemic, working on a mixture of grammar, listening, reading, and speaking. We'd welcome interested students to join us in the new year - but no absolute beginners at this time, please. If you've got the basics of pronunciation and a cupla focal, and want to do more, let us know by writing to so we can talk about whether this is an opportunity for you.
