Free Irish Language Lessons Launched at Cultúrlann

So what if you could learn Irish, at home, for free?

Thanks to funding from the Big Lottery Fund, Derry’s Cultúrlann Uí Chanáin is now able to provide a series of podcasts online completely free of charge to encourage people to take the plunge and learn a new skill.

Funded by the Big Lottery Fund, Cultúr le Comhrá is an Irish language-learning aid  provided by An Chultúrlann designed to open learning up to as wide an audience as possible. The course is suitable for those who want to start from scratch and for those with some Irish already who want to improve what they’ve got.

Ciara Nic Lochlainn project co-ordinator said “Cultúr le Comhrá means Culture with Conversation and these podcasts which are based on conversation between two speakers are like mini Irish lessons. They give learners the opportunity to learn Irish in an easy way without spending any money and fit perfectly with the Líofa 2015 initiative launched some time ago. This series will run for 30 weeks and there will be five programmes broadcast per week. Cultúr le Comhrá will be divided into 3 Sections, 10 weeks of podcasts for complete Beginners, 10 weeks of podcasts for Intermediate learners and 10 weeks of podcast for advanced learners.”

Cultúr le Comhrá launches on the 18th February and will be available to download or listen to at For more information you can also call 02871 264132
