Learning Irish in Switzerland – Member Interview with Kevin

Explore member, Kevin, talks to Emma about his Irish language journey that started at a very young age as his parents hail from Cork City. He mentions his childhood visits to Cork and how his cousins, who were learning Irish in school, would send their Irish language schoolbooks to him in England!

His interest in the language has been present throughout his life and he has now managed to dedicate some more time to really begin to learn and practice and finally ‘scratch the itch’ that he has always had.

Kevin shares some examples of the smaller victories that he has achieved in his learning journey, understanding road signs on his trip to the Gaeltacht and even reading short stories in Irish and his progress each time.

Kevin is our first Explore member to be interviewed as part of this series as our online community ‘Pobal’ is now available to all new and existing Explore members!
