The Canberra Irish Language association would like to extend its thanks to the Irish government for awarding us a 2018 ESP grant! This grant will help us fund more great activities for the language classes and Irish speakers here in Canberra and we are very excited about the opportunities it opens up.
We have been contacted regarding a new theatre show in Ireland for one of Ireland’s foremost theatre directors, Oonagh Murphy. The show is called The Mouth of a Shark and will premier at a new theatre festival in Dublin in 2018. The show is about migration, specifically Irish immigrants and we are looking to get stories from Irish people who left Ireland for Australia, for social and cultural reasons over the years.
