ONGOING EVENTS at the Gaelic League:

Do you like to read?

The Gaelic League Cultural Committee has created a Library of over 100 books of Irish Titles or by Irish Authors. The Library is located in the Gaelic League Lounge on bookshelves on either side of the fireplace. Come and check it out! The books are available to Gaelic League or Irish American Club members in good standing, and can be checked out for up to 30 days at no charge. Just complete the checkout card in the pocket of the books available, and turn the card into the bartender on duty. Books can be returned to the bartender when due. The Library is available during normal Gaelic League operating hours. The Cultural Committee welcomes books of Irish topics, or written by Irish authors, which you may wish to donate to the Library.

 

Many of the ongoing events in the Metro Detroit Irish Community take place September thru May with a break in December. Please send news and announcements to this site for posting. Many classes and lessons are conducted at the Gaelic League. The Gaelic League provides the venue but does not receive any remuneration in return. The instructors set and collect the class and lesson fees. The Gaelic League promotes many fine Irish cultural and tradition activities and encourages you to support and participate in them, as well as the events and activities sponsored by the Gaelic League.
