Tom Jeffers 'Irish place names and lore.'
Tom Jeffers is a native of Dublin. He came to St. Paul ten years ago as a Fulbright Foreign Language Teaching Assistant, teaching Irish Gaelic at the University of St. Thomas. He has returned to teaching Irish language classes as part of the educational offerings given at the Celtic Junction Arts Center's new library since October 2017. He will discuss the rich tradition of how the Irish language shapes place names in his talk.
