Curious about the Irish language?
Then join the new Pirates of Irish Persuasion & Extraction (PIPE)
Alumni Club for an Irish language workshop! On the evening of Friday,
February 7, 2014, we will be joined by Paul Ferris, who will tell us
about the current status of the Irish language and its relation to the
other Celtic languages. He'll also teach us a little bit of Irish, and
we'll learn to speak and understand a few basic phrases, and even to
sing a simple song in Irish!
Paul Ferris is a graduate of the NYU Irish and Irish American Studies
MA program, and has taught the Irish language at NYU and Drew
University. He studied the language at An Acadamh in County Galway and
Oideas Gael in County Donegal, and is a former member of the executive
board of the North American Association of Celtic Language Teachers.
Dinner begins at 6 p.m., and the workshop begins at 6:30 p.m. The
event will take place in the Chancellor’s Suite of the Bishop Dougherty
University Center. This event is open to all Seton Hall University
alumni and their friends. We also encourage undergraduate and graduate
students, faculty, staff, and administrators to attend. To register,
please contact Rob Mayers at firstname.lastname@example.org.
