"It was a fantastic course, and I commend them on having such a good institute - it’s a credit to themselves and the Irish language.""Chabhraigh siad go mór chun píosa muinín a thabhairt domsa chun Gaeilge a labhairt." "Bhí seachtain thar cionn agam. Bhain mé an taitneamh as agus beidh mé ag dul ar ais gan amhras ar bith an bhliain seo chugainn." “It was brilliant, I don’t know where the Irish came from after nearly 40 years. I murdered it but everyone was very understanding!” "The teaching was very good and well pitched for each level; the teacher managed to pitch the classes both to our particular needs and ability."
