Canada, The Irish Language and the Easter Uprising 1916: A Commemoratory Conference

Aralt Mac Giolla Chainnigh, who is one of our members, and founding chair of the North American Gaeltacht is working with the Irish Embassy to organize a commemorative conference at the Ambassador’s Residence on 19/20 February about the 1916 Uprising. 

Members are strongly encouraged to attend. During the conference reception on Friday 19 February, at the Ambassador's residence, another of our members, Bríd Guglich, is being honored by investiture as the President of Oireachtas Gaeilge Cheanada. The poster concerning that investiture is also attached. It would be nice if we could have a strong contingent present from the branch present to give Bríd our congratulations.
