Irish Classes in Lismore Heritage Centre: Join the G Team

Lismore is recruiting for The G-Team! The G-Team is a brand new TG4 reality TV series searching for Ireland’s top Irish speaking town (outside of the Gaeltacht). TG4 will be visiting Lismore in the coming weeks in the run up to G Day- the day the cameras roll into town to observe every effort being made to use Irish in the community. The show’s producers assure us that “The G Team is not about fluent Irish speakers or people who got top marks in Irish in school, the programme encourages everyone to dust off the cupla focal they have and to use it in our everyday lives”

Lismoreians of all ages and Irish speaking abilities are urged to get involved in G Team preparations; James Lenane, Chairman of G Team Committee says “The G Team is a fantastic opportunity to showcase Lismore to a national audience.” Not to mention the €40,000 Foras na Gaeilge prize that the ultimate winners of G Team will take away to benefit their local area.

To facilitate anyone who would like to dust off their bit of Gaeilge in advance of G Day a series of Irish classes will be held in Lismore Heritage Centre. Classes will begin on Tuesday 16th August at 7.00pm and continue for six weeks on Tuesday evenings. The classes will be approximately one hour in duration and will cost €30.00 per person in total.

If you are interested in attending these classes please contact Arlene Kenny on 058-54975 or email
