This team will be using common interests in sport, backpacking recreation to begin conversations and develop relationships with Irish Gaelic speakers in Ireland.
31 May – 1 July 2024
This team will be staying in a specifically Irish-speaking area to learn about the language and culture while making friendships with Irish speakers. They will be staying in youth hostels, campgrounds, or other arrangements. Through common interests in the sports, backpacking and the outdoors, this team will build relationships and foster spiritual conversations with Irish speakers of similar interests.
This team is ideal for people with a background or interest in team sports, hiking and/or water sports who can use these interests and talents as a natural connection point with Irish speakers. This is a very independent project. Those who require a great deal of direct supervision or instruction should not consider this assignment.
