|Sa tsúil nach gcuirfimis le scaipeadh an víreas COVID19, tá na ranganna fisiciúla curtha ar ceal faoi láthair.|
|To avoid adding to the spread of the COVID19 virus, all physical classes are cancelled at the moment.|
At the moment (April 2020) we are trialling online video classes using Zoom. Although you can join a Zoom meeting using only a web browser, it is recommended that you get the Zoom app (Windows, Mac, Linux, Android, iOS). There are two groups for the time being: a beginners class (bunrang) and a conversation group. This may change depending on demand and availability of teachers. The class starts at the same time (Tuesday 7:30 pm), but will run for 1 hour.
We run classes every Tuesday night during the Victorian school term (except public holidays), starting at 7:30 pm. There are different levels of classes, so you should find one to suit you. You’re welcome to come along and try them out, but if you want to attend regularly you will need to become a member of the Cumann. There is also a fee of $5 per class.
Classes are aimed at adult learners and led by experienced teachers. Different classes use different texts and some of these are available for purchase (e.g. Gaeilge gan stró, Buntús Cainte, Progress in Irish).
Classes are held at the offices of The Celtic Club — Level 1, 420-424 William Street, West Melbourne. There is parking in William Street and in Franklin Street on the south side of Victoria Market.
The venue is the temporary (administrative) home of The Celtic Club while the club site is being redeveloped and is not licensed. But just across the street is the Royal Standard Hotel and within walking distance you can find The Last Jar and The Drunken Poet as well as Celtic at the Metropolitan (The Celtic Club’s other temporary home).
