While teaching in Percy St. primary school on the Shankill, Bertha went to the Ardscoil at the bottom of the Falls Road and started learning Irish and travelling to Rann na Feirste. She often told of “secret meetings” of Irish speakers in the back of shops on the Newtownards Road, & set up an Irish circle in Holywood that exists to this day. When the IRA ceasefire was announced, she insisted on going up to the Culturlann to chat freely as Gaeilge.
