Next Gaelic Conversation Session + Burns Night – 25 January

a Chàirdean,

Our next Gaelic Conversation Session is this Wednesday, 25 January, at 6:30 pm.

The 25th is the birthday of the “Ploughman Poet”, Robert Burns (1759-1796), and Baltimore has for years had a wonderful Burns Night celebration at Liam Flynn’s Alehouse.  Now that the Ale House has closed, at least for the time being, Liam is holding the same great celebration at his other place, O’Flynn’s, which is in the Brooklyn neighborhood on the Patapsco River, at 3432 S. Hanover Street, Baltimore, Maryland 21225.

To allow us all to enjoy the Burns Supper, we are holding the Gaelic Conversation Session at O’Flynn’s this Wednesday.  We will start at 6:30 pm as usual. If you have never been to a conversation session and want to come, please do.  It is a very beginner-friendly session.The Burns Night celebration starts at 7:30 pm.
