The Irish Tea on Saturday, January 16, was a huge success

The Irish Tea on Saturday, January 16, was a huge success. There was a big variety of delicious tea sandwiches, savories, breads, and desserts. And of course, Barry’s and other teas!
Bruce gave a ten-minute tutorial on the Gaelig language and had handouts to make understanding the pronounciations easier.
The highlight of the evening was a charming presentation by Lauryn with an interesting slide show about her great grandfather who emigrated from Aughavas, County Leitrim, Ireland and made his way via Quebec, eastern Oregon and then to Portland. Lauryn read a poem that her father wrote about his grandfather, Pat Lee.
The other highlight of the evening was a most interesting and educational presentation by Nora who had studied in Ireland recently. She talked about the education system in Ireland and how it differs from the U. S. Her experiences in sharing an apartment with three Irish students at the University of Galway were delightful.
The All-Ireland Cultural Society appreciates these two young ladies and thank them very much for their presentations.
