Hi, I'm Rónán

Hey I'm Rónán. I've worked as an online marketer, software developer and windsurfing instructor. I'm from Galway, and used to speak Irish almost everyday. Since then, like a most, I've stopped speaking it altogether, and have lost most of my fluency. However, when I do try, it starts to come back surprisingly quickly. So I've started this group as a way of getting people together to practice Irish in a relaxed environment, whenever we want.This way of practicing was hugely helpful in increasing my fluency in German.I think we all know a lot more then we give ourselves credit for - we just need a chance to prove it to ourselves!

A Community of Irish Learners

We all learned Irish, but we have no opportunity to speak it! Many of us would love try to speak Irish casually without having to travel to the Gaeltacht. Well, we shouldn't have to. It should be as easy as logging in from our couch, and finally putting into practice what we have spent so long learning.What I have found is that everyone is surprised by how much Irish they speak when they try. Speaking it in a relaxed environment really triggers the memory.So how does it work? Well, we speak online, together in small groups. There is a new theme for every meetup provided, with plenty of questions to guide the discussion, so there is always something to talk about. It is lead by a fluent Irish speaker, and they will be in your group sometimes. But other times you will be with the other members, chatting about the guided theme or you can speak naturally and free-flowing as Gaeilge!This method of simply speaking is a tried and tested way of increasing fluency.

There are separate groups for beginner, intermediate and advanced, so you can speak with members of a similar level whilst being pushed.

The Mission

The typical Irish journey is quite short. People usually stop speaking Irish after secondary school.Gaeilge Gym aims to help people keep their Irish, so they will be speaking Irish for the rest of their lives.The goal of Gaeilge Gym is to increase the number of active Irish speakers.
