This unique course offers an opportunity for Irish language speakers to spend a week on Tory Island and study the rich language, culture and folklore of this special offshore island.

Arriving at the pier in Machaire Rabhartaigh, summer school partipants will get the ferry to Tory and be accommodated at the local hotel or in accommodation of their choise. Dr Seosamh Mac Muirí will direct the intensive programme of classes, lectures, walks and music and dance sessions. Participants will attend an opening reception hosted by Ri Thorai (The King of Tory) Patsy Dan Mac Ruairí. Tory is renowned for its wealth of music, song, dance and heritage. Tory hospitality is second to none and participants will need strong physical stamina to last the full week!

Those interested in participating are advised to consult with Oideas Gael before making a reservation.
