Biography

Tá an Dr. John Walsh ina Léachtóir Sinsearach le Gaeilge i Scoil na dTeangacha, na Litríochtaí agus na gCultúr. Múineann sé an tsochtheangeolaíocht ag leibhéal na bunchéime agus na hiarchéime. Ceapadh ina Leas-Déan Taighde é i gColáiste na nDán, na nEolaíochtaí Sóisialta agus an Léinn Cheiltigh i 2012. Tá dochtúireacht ag an Dr. Walsh ó Ollscoil Chathair Bhaile Átha Cliath faoi thionchar na Gaeilge ar fhorbairt shocheacnamaíoch na hÉireann. Roimhe sin, rinne sé céim MA sa Chaidreamh Idirnáisiúnta (Socheolaíocht, Polaitíocht, Dlí) san ollscoil chéanna. Tá céim BA sa Ghaeilge agus sa Bhreatnais aige ón gColáiste Ollscoile, Baile Átha Cliath. Roimh dó tabhairt faoin saol acadúil d’oibrigh an Dr. Walsh mar léachtóir Gaeilge in Ollscoil Chathair Bhaile Átha Cliath, leis an mBiúró Eorpach do Theangacha Neamhfhorleathana sa Bhruiséil agus mar iriseoir le Raidió Teilifís Éireann agus le TG4. Faoi láthair, tá sé i mbun taighde ar idé-eolaíocht agus spreagadh ‘nuachainteoirí’ mionteangacha, daoine nár tógadh leis na teangacha sin ach a labhraíonn iad go líofa agus go rialta.
