Happy New Year (Auld Lang Syne)

“Auld Lang Syne” from a 1788 poem by Robert Burns, literally translates to “old long since".
The original, five-verse version of the poem essentially gets people singing, “lets drink to days gone by”
— traditionally at the stroke of Midnight on New Year's, with a glass of a champagne and a friendly kiss. 

 

Irish Language classes are held at the Sons of Erin from 2 pm to 3 pm every Thursday.

It is informal, led by ourselves, where we listen to language tapes, study Irish language books, and practice conversing in Irish.
