Naomh Barróg and KLEAR launch Irish Language classes for adult beginners

Naomh Barróg GAA club in conjunction with KLEAR has launched a pilot Irish Language course for Adults. It is pitched at beginners/returners and is intended as an aid to parents when helping with Irish language homework. It takes place on Monday mornings and runs for 6 weeks.  It is intended that after the pilot more classes will be scheduled and more places can be made available to the broader Naomh Barróg community.

Martin Kiernan chairman of Naomh Barróg commented “this type of project is consistent with our commitment to the Irish language and our desire to reach into the community. We are very proud of our involvement in it”

Leah Skipton of KLEAR stated “We are delighted to work with Naomh Barróg to deliver a specific demand driven programme into the community”
