Gaeilge sa Ghleann was the Awesome Annapolis winner for July with support for an Irish Gaelic immersion weekend, based in Annapolis Royal
The Irish activities will take place on the weekend of October 13 to 15, 2017 from Friday evening to Sunday afternoon, and will consist of Irish language classes taught by qualified teachers, cultural activities and Celtic music, and social events.
This immersion weekend is open to all including Irish learners in the local Gaeilge sa Ghleann group as well as the broader Canadian and International Irish Gaelic learning community.
This is the first time such an immersion program is being offered in this area, and the focus will be on beginners and lower intermediate language learners. We are projecting a total participation of 30 to 40 people.
The immersion course will find its home in the O’Dell House Museum. The goal is to harness the strength of Annapolis Royal, which is a collection of unique heritage buildings and a diverse base of entrepreneurs.
The program will spread out to other venues in the area and will benefit many of the local businesses.
