In the turbulent recent history of Northern Ireland, the Irish language has been accused of being politicised and polarising. What would inspire somebody from a Protestant, Unionist background to learn Irish and then become one of the language’s greatest advocates?

Linda Ervine will share her own inspiring story at this free event and will talk about the journey taken by the Turas Irish language centre in East Belfast.  

Saturday 2pm at Sallins National School
