    Iit was wonderful hearing what Dineen had to say! Her Irish was fantastic,too! It’s so important that Irish becomes the main language of the Irish people in Ireland again.When you’ve got such a beautiful language,and it’s your own language,why not speak it?

  2. So nice to hear Dineen Grow’s warm and friendly voice offering very wise advice on how to tackle the Irish language. She’s been the first gentle introduction to the language for so many people. I spent my time at the last Celtic Culture Irish Immersion Weekend in Bloomington, Indiana just observing her teaching techniques. Thanks for sharing your time with Dineen with the podcast listening audience.
