The workshop will also discuss some of the historical background of the language, how it has influenced and been influenced by other languages, and the development of Irish place names, surnames, and personal names.

Workshops are taught online through Zoom and Canvas.

A device to capture images (digital camera, smart phone, or tablet, etc.) is helpful, but not required.
