Please explain what your hopes and expectations are in joining the Austin Celtic Meetup?

I'm hoping to meet people who can give me new insights into my heritage and help me learn how to speak in the Irish tongue, if possible. I've been known to slip into a slightly Irish accent and think it would be interesting and fun to be able to speak with it all the time, o even just know how to speak in a language that actually appeals to me, personally.

What particular facet of Celtic culture (Music, History, Language, Art, Storytelling etc) most interests you?

I personally find the art of storytelling that the Irish used for so long to be very fascinating, and the language, to me, is beautiful. The music and history also appeal to me, because I want to know as much about where I and my ancestors came from as possible, and there is a surprising amount of history to be found in many culture's songs. So, pretty much all of it, I suppose.


I recently moved to Austin and have had some interest in learning more about my heritage, but until now had no ideas on where to start other than online.
