Irish Language Forums Discussion:     Irish language at Cambridge University England

Gaeilge the Irish language has become an official subject at Cambridge University, one of Englands oldest third level education establishments.
The elite University of Cambridge will tomorrow launch its first classes in modern Irish.
Cambridge already teaches medieval Irish, the new addition will mean that for the first time, common, modern elements of both gaelic language and literature will be on offer for students.
Acclaimed poet Dr Louis de Paor will give a celebratory reading to mark the occasion, while the the Irish Ambassador, Daithi O’Ceallaigh, will also be present.
“Ireland is going through an era of rapid cultural change, in which it is particularly easy to lose track of where one comes from, as we move into more of a distinctively European future, the study of Irish has the potential to be a positive aspect of identity. The university hopes the classes will reinforce an understanding of Irish identity not just within Ireland, but among the thousands of Diaspora spread throughout the globe. Learning Irish need not be related to ethnicity or family background. One of the main reasons for setting up classes at Cambridge is to stress that the study of Irish is of value for anyone interested in it for whatever reason" senior lecturer in Celtic languages and literature Dr Maire Ni Mhaonaigh said.
The Irish Government has provided funding to the university to help make the course a reality.
