Irish Ambassador Jim Kelly visited Prince Edward Island last week including a stop at UPEI on August 31 where he met with President Alaa Abd-El-Aziz, Vice-President Academic and Research Robert Gilmour, Dean of Business Jurgen Krause, and Dean of Arts Neb Kujundzic.

Among the topics of discussion included the many collaborations and partnerships UPEI has with Irish institutions and scholarship programs. Ambassador Kelly also attended an event later that day with Benevolent Irish Society members to greet this year’s UPEI Irish Language instructor, Gormlaith Maynes, who provided information on her course, Introduction to Irish Gaelic 1, which can be audited or taken for credit (free for seniors).
