Muireann Nic Corcráin
While Connecticut might be separated from Ireland by 3,000 miles, an increasing number of Huskies can answer "yes" to the question, An bhfuil Gaeilge agat? ("Do you speak Irish?"), thanks to a visiting scholar from the Emerald Isle. Muireann Nic Corcráin is spending the academic year at UConn as a Fulbright Scholar teaching the Irish language. Along the way, she also wants to help promote Irish culture to the University community.
