Her website remains active, but it is unknown for how much longer. She was an excellent Gaelic teacher and she will be greatly missed.

Welcome to the homepage of the Tucson Gaelic Institute and Muriel of Skye, a.k.a. Muriel Fisher. Muriel has been teaching gaelic in Tucson and around the world for over 20 years. During that time, over 1000 students have come to appreciate and love her native language. Please join us!

Muriel’s years of experience teaching Gaelic have helped her develop her own sets of Gaelic educational materials. Designed to be self contained, each level builds on the previous one. Included in the packets are a textbook, workbook and CD’s. It’s like being in her class!
