Paul FerrisCurious 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.
