Protestants and the Irish Language – A Killyleagh Talk
During this lunchtime talk, Gordon will discuss why were those who were literate in Irish were once suspected of being Protestants who were up to no good?
Why does a hotel in Belfast have a Gaelic motto which means ‘Ireland for Ever’? What do young Protestants who learn today think of the language?
Find out answers to these and more when Gordon McCoy charts a religious undercurrent of Irish – a language once spoken by Protestant nationalists and unionists alike.
Admission to this talk is free and everyone is welcome.
