‘Grá & Eagla’ the award winning documentary has received huge international success and will screen as part of the Mother Tongues Arts Festival, Galway and Dublin this coming Spring. The documentary follows Áine Gallagher as she prepares to perform bilingual comedy at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. As the story unfolds, we see the doubt and insecurity experienced and sheds fresh insight on what being an Irish speaker means in modern Ireland.

Events will include panel discussions and insights from people with experience of speaking English and other languages as a second language. Ultimately, it is aimed that audiences can learn about the common experiences of learning languages, and leave feeling encouraged and confident to learn their own second language.
