Aonad na Gaeilge is the Irish Language Unit at the University of Limerick. The Unit has a strong association with the Irish World Academy of Music and Dance and it provides Irish language classes as part of the Blas Summer School schedule every year. Language classes are offered at two levels (absolute beginners and intermediate) depending on student interest. These language classes give participants a flavour of the language and look particularly at themes around applied Irish for musicians and dancers.
