About Us

Cumann an Phiarsaigh provides courses in Irish language and culture for families as Gaeilge in the Donegal Gaeltacht.

The aim of the course is to improve spoken Irish by offering families the opportunity of experiencing Irish as a living language in a Gaeltacht area. The course is ideally suited for families interested in an activity based holiday as Gaeilge and it caters for all adults and for children up to Transition Year.

Children are offered the opportunity to improve their Irish in a friendly atmosphere while adults, from beginners to fluent speakers, engage in their own language and cultural activities.

The course is fully recognised by the Department of Education.  Teachers who attend are entitled to extra personal vacation (EPV) as per other Summer Courses (see Circular 0035/2009).

Everyone is encouraged to bring along musical instruments and sportsgear.

Learn and speak Irish in a friendly & cultural atmosphere
