A little bit about me...

Patricia Nic Eoin is ainm dom. I've worked with some of the big names in language learning (the Michel Thomas Method; the Olly Richards Story Learning series) and I've also deveoped my own courses for teaching Irish.

I'm a qualified solicitor and I've worked as an Irish language translator at the European Commission in Brussels. I live in Galway city, but am originally from the small village of Kinvara on the south shores of Galway Bay.

"The method of teaching was interactive and engaging. It was a lot of fun and I am amazed at how much I learned."
