Scoil Gaeilge Vancouver or Scoil Gaeilge Coquitlam

Scoil Gaeilge Vancouver looks forward to Spring 2010 to continue the teaching of the Irish Language in the Lower Mainland of Vancouver.

Students who are interested in learning Gaelic can also learn at Mackin House Museum in Coquitlam where Conor O’Reilly has kindly offered to teach classes and hopefully the new location will provide an opportunity for people to attend in the Tri Cities Area.

Please feel free to forward the information to others who may be interested.
