Irish Night at EJC2014This day we are celebrating all things Irish! There will be lots of Irish cultural activities throughout the day for all our international visitors to learn about 'having the craic'.

Irish Language Workshop

Ireland has its own unique language, Gaeilge which unlike many other European languages is not derived from Latin. It is the first language of a minority of Irish people today, and the second language of the  majority of Irish people.

This workshop will teach you some basic vocabulary you can use everyday in Ireland, and some fun phrases to impress the locals, and your friends!

Location and time: See workshop board

Irish Dancing Workshop

This workshop will teach you the ways of 'Irish Dancing', which is Ireland's own national dance, which can be performed solo or together with thousands of people in our set dance called a Céilí. This workshop will teach you the basic steps and set you up for the evening's Céilí Mór.
