#SnaG22 – Keynote Speech – Dr Ian Malcolm: ‘Protestants and The Irish Language

We welcomed Dr Ian Malcolm from Lurgan to Aonach Mhacha where he gave a great lecture on ‘Protestants and The Irish Language’ to celebrate Seachatin na Gaeilge. He gave a thoroughly interesting lecture to a great crowd in our theatre at Aonach Mhacha. To finish on the night the Orchard Ukes accompanied Dr Malcolm on the Ukulele and played a version of the Sash which he had translated to Irish.

Thanks to everyone who attended the event and a huge thanks to Dr Malcolm and the Orchard Ukes. It was a fantastic evening!

A huge thank you to our teachers and those who attended and to the staff at Aonach Mhacha especially those in Caifé Mhacha who provided everyone with a lovely lunch!
