I am delighted to officially launch Learn.Irish this Easter Monday 6th April here in sunny Aughnacloy, Co Tyrone.
Achadh na Cloiche, Tír Eoghain – the field of the stone – in the land of Eoghan.
It is an understatement to say that I am ecstatic to be the first Irishman in Ireland to launch a dot.Irish domain.!
My goal is to provide a full range of resources for those seeking to Learn.Irish. The material here will include listings of classes and organisations worldwide, details of both free and paid materials, recordings, books and online lessons. I will be adding more and more resources on a daily basis. I welcome your Feedback and/or constructive criticism and I would be most grateful if you are able to tell me if you have a Job with Irish on offer, if you provide Courses or if you host another resource of specific interest to those learning Irish.
Learn.Irish Ltd is a Founder in the dot Irish Founders Programme. The Founders Program is an opportunity for selected applicants to be among the first in the world to own a .IRISH domain. Dot Irish will become available to the general public on June 25th this year. We also operate http://rexco.com – Rexco.Domains Ltd is a domain registration specialist company and we would be glad to advise you regarding your domains and to assist you in securing the Dot Irish name of your choice.
In my opinion there is a revolution going on right now with regard to Irish. All over the world people are engaging in the language with classes taking place in Australia, America, Canada and even England (via http://www.colaiste-na-ngael.com and http://in-gb.co.uk/to-learn-irish).
At this moment, for the first time since The Genocide, the number of Irish speakers are on the increase. Here in the North we have a stubborn pride in the language and all things Irish and there are now vibrant Gaelscoil communities all across the 6 Counties.
“Losing Irish would not merely involve the severing of a link with our cultural past, but would also limit the possibilities for new kinds of cultural fusion in the future.” – Máirín Nic Eoin
