Social Spaces

An Seomra Caidrimh for Modern Irish

Our School has a dedicated Irish-language student common room, an Seomra Caidrimh. Students from all disciplines are welcome to visit this room, have a cup of tea or coffee and practise their Irish with other students - even if they only have a couple of words.

Students are welcome to organise Irish language events in the Seomra Caidrimh but we ask that you first contact the Director of the Teanglann Eimhear Ní Dhuinn (opens in a new window)eimhear.nidhuinn@ucd.ie to ensure the Seomra Caidrimh is free.

The Seomra Caidrimh is located in B214 in the Newman Building.
