Waterways Ireland is celebrating Seachtain Na Gaeilge 2017, an international Irish language festival again this year, by offering free school tours ás gaeilge from the Waterways Ireland Centre, in Grand Canal Dock, Dublin on 10th March.
Seachtain Na Gaeilge is one of the biggest celebrations of native language and culture taking place each year in Ireland and worldwide. Gaeilgeoir Cormac MacCashin will lead tours around Grand Canal Quay enthralling school groups with his knowledge of the waterways.
Participants will hear about why we need Locks and Docks, waterways heritage, the biodiversity of the canal ecosystem and how a Lock operates, as well as an exciting treasure hunt.
Trips are fully booked for this year events but dates will be available for school tours in the Summer and Autumn terms. Enquiries can be made to [email protected]
