Event description:


Old Irish Reading Group
Are you interested in exploring the Irish language that was used in medieval times?
The Old Irish Reading Group that meets every Friday at Sancta Sophia College at the
University of Sydney is welcoming new members. Starting Friday 30 July, a new
group of beginners will be starting with the group. The program will be 12.00 midday
- beginners working through Quin's Old Irish Workbook from the start; 12.30 -
reading and translating from the text Crith Gablach; 1.30 - advanced group working
through Quin's Old Irish Workbook from lesson 26; 2.00 - finish. Everyone is
welcome for any part or the whole of the program. The sessions are fun and informal
over coffee (bring your lunch if you like). You don't have to know any Old or
Modern Irish to join us, and there is no homework (although everyone is welcome to
do extra work or preparation at home if they want to). If you think you might be
interested, please email or phone Pamela ( This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it or 0421 470 900).
