All levels of Irish are catered for, and everyone is given a chance to contribute. As well as providing an opportunity for adults to converse in Irish in an informal manner, these groups often discuss topical subjects and subjects from library books in Irish. Occasionally, authors/poets are invited to read from their own works. Cassettes and book packs on learning Irish are also available from library stock. The cupán tae agus brioscaí are very popular too!
