Bord na Gaeilge UCD is the university’s cross-faculty Irish language board which facilitates all students and staff who wish to engage with the language. Its current projects include language courses, cultural workshops, a translation service, an Irish language student residence scheme, an alumni mentoring scheme, international exchanges and a summer school for the global Irish language community. It has a particular warm welcome for international students and staff, alumni and diaspora.
Club Leabhar Belfield aims to encourage those with a reasonable knowledge of the language to read in Irish. The club is organised in association with the James Joyce Library, and with the help of a faciltator, Dr Liam Mac Amhlaigh. The club meets every second Wednesday, 5.45pm-6.45pm, commencing 26 September 2018. Books are available via the Bord na Gaeilge Office.Find out more
