The UT Irish Language Club
The UT Irish Language Club will be having it's first meeting on Wed., February 16th at 7pm. Our room is SZB 286 on the UT campus. This is the education building, which is directly across MLK from the Bob Bullock Museum. Speedway is now permanently closed, so the most convienient parking can be found on Congress in front of and around the Bob Bullock Museum.
A campus map can be found here (since Speedway is closed, it is now shown as curving into Brazos) We will have the same room every week except for the fourth Wed. of every month, so 2/23, 3/23, and 4/27 will be held in room SZB 434. You do not have to be a UT student to attend. Irish language classes will be taught by the Gaelic League of Austin.
