About the event

This will be a class for learners who have experienced learning Irish in the past but may not be comfortable in some social settings. It will be expected that the learners will have a basic comprehension and ability to pronounce most phonetic sounds associated with the Irish language. It is not expected that the learners be in any way fluent or have spent a considerable time learning Irish. Such helpful phrases such as being able to order food or a drink, asking for directions, describing the weather, buying groceries and small talk will be included.

Pa Sheehan

Pa Sheehan is the Ireland Canada University Foundation (ICUF) Irish Language Instructor at the University of St. Michael's College, University of Toronto. Hailing from Sixmilebridge in County Clare, Pa was not raised in Irish but has developed a love for the language. This love for Irish has taken Pa as far as the University of Montana where he completed a year as part of a prestigious Fulbright scholarship before beginning his ICUF journey at Memorial University of Newfoundland before moving to Toronto this year. Throughout these posts, Pa has gained much experience working with beginners as well as advanced students and everything in between. His love for Irish culture equals his love for the language with a particular emphasis on hurling.
