Also, I have arranged to have a classroom available at Ottawa University on Wednesday evenings, for CCÉ Irish language learners, starting in January 2015 (details will soon be available on the CCÉ website).
In October I attended the Ottawa Gaels AGM. The current Chair of the Ottawa Gaels, Vanessa McLean, and myself have agreed to work closely together for the promotion of our respective activities. On another note, the Gaels have done a terrific job in doing two things: fund raising and getting very young children involved in the Gaelic football. To raise funds, they have run golf tournaments and a Pig Roast, and they are running Gaelic football workshops as an after school program in certain schools.
Bought and sent a flower arrangement to Mary O’Donnell on behalf of CCÉ in honour of the years of service that her husband, Ruadhraí, gave to the branch.
