The son of Prince William, Duke of Cambridge, and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge Prince George is to enter Naíscoil an Iúir, on Kilmorey Street and be brought up on the language of Irish.
Windsor Castle announced today that Prince George was enrolled in the Naíscol (Nursery) for the forthcoming education year.
The news has been met with great anticipation by Irish language enthusiasts all over Ireland but particular so in Newry.
We sent our Irish language reporter Caoimhín MacGiolla Mac An Builla Mac Walla Bulla Bella La La to speak to parents at the school but unfortunately none of the parents could actually speak the language they are sending their children to learn.
The 3rd in line to the British monarchy will stay with a family in Barcroft who are said to be ‘close and personal friends’ with Prince William and Duchess Catherine. He has already been included in the Bosco GAA club’s toddlers team to learn the games of Ireland as well as the language.
