Ceardlanna Léiriúcháin le Aidan Courtney

Aidan Courtney, local illustrator and founder of the children’s comic RíRá, ran two workshops through Irish for eager young artists in Lisdoonvarna Library and deValera Library, Ennis, during Seachtain na Gaeilge. Children from Doolin National School and from the Holy Family Senior School in Ennis had a hugely entertaining session with Aidan as he sketched the kids’ suggestions and chatted to them as gaeilge for an hour in each library. The children were busy throughout, sketching cartoons and contributing to the workshop using the Irish language as they wished, in light hearted, no pressure sessions. Aidan’s presentation and easy manner entertained them from start to finish, promoting the Irish language in the very best of ways for children.
