The workshop will be led by Éilis Nic Aodhagáin

Éilis Nic Aodhagáin (Éilis Keegan) is from a small town called Athboy in County Meath. Her qualifications include a BA in Irish and Spanish and an MA in Modern Irish, both from University College Dublin. Éilis is currently an Irish teacher at Gaelchultúr Teoranta and at University College Dublin, but she has also taught at University of Montana as a Fulbright FLTA. When not teaching Irish, she enjoys playing both camogie and Gaelic football with an Irish-speaking club in Dublin – Na Gaeil Óga – and sitting down in a quiet session to play a few tunes on the fiddle with some friends. In many ways she is your typical Irish cailín, but she will also head off traveling the world at the drop of a hat as she enjoys nothing more than seeing new places, meeting new people and trying new things. She is very excited to visit Phoenix and meet all the great people Vicki Champion has been telling her about! Beidh sí ag caint libh ag Seachtain na Gaeilge Arizona!
