This month Nuachtlitir Ghaelchultúir spoke to Jenny McCabe, a primary school teacher who has done a few EPV courses with Gaelchultúr, and who plans to do some more this summer.
There’s plenty of information in this month’s edition of Nuachtlitir Ghaelchultúir about events run by the company itself and by other organisations. So whether you’re looking for a language course or an Irish language hobby, you’ll find all the best advice here.
Over one thousand primary school teachers succeeded in completing an EPV course on ranganna.com last summer, and we’re hoping to exceed that number this year!
This autumn, Coláiste na hÉireann/Gaelchultúr will again be offering the Postgraduate Diploma in Translation and a scholarship (i.e. the course without the fees) will be awarded to one student on the programme.
This year, for the first time ever, Bord na Gaeilge UCD will be running a summer school, Tionól Gaeilge UCD, in the university. This school, which is being organised by the Bord in conjunction with Gaelchultúr, will take place on the Belfield campus between Monday, 31 July and Friday, 4 August and teachers who attend the school will be entitled to three EPV days.
The days are getting longer and it won’t be long until Gaelchultúr’s summer evening classes begin!

Would you like to finally get the answers to language and grammar questions that have been bugging you for years? Grasp the opportunity this summer!
When the Certificate in Professional Irish was first offered in 2012, only four students participated in the course. Almost five years later over 820 students have taken the course, and the Certificate in Professional Irish’s popularity continues to grow.
In this series, we give our readers a chance to get to know a little bit about the teachers on Gaelchultúr’s Irish language courses. Seán Ó Catháin, originally from Galway city, is the teacher we’d like to introduce to you this month.
