Gaeilge 24

Gaeilge 24 is an initiative organized by Conradh na Gaeilge which encourages students to speak Gaeilge both inside and outside the classroom for a full 24 hours. Over 50 first year students are registered to take part in the initiative on Tuesday 13th November. Students participating will wear a t-shirt over their uniform.
