Gaelic Club

Learning the Irish Language

The MMI Gaelic Club meets to learn the Gaelic language, the ancestral language of all Americans with Scottish or Irish roots. In previous years, Dr. Rankin Sherling (MMI history instructor) has taken cadets to Ireland to take part in a five-week Gaelic language immersion program in Connemara and western County Donegal.  By all accounts, the trips have been a great success. Not only did the MMI Gaelic Club greatly further their knowledge of the language, but the cadets are changed by this unique experience.
