Language Xchange Ireland was founded in 2009 by Con Furey and Kieran Quigley. With backgrounds in business, Human Resources and Health and Safety, Con and Kieran identified an ever-increasing demand for English language programmes that would also provide students with an opportunity to learn ‘Business English’ terminology.
As owners of already established local businesses, Kieran and Con could access a broad network of work placement options in which students could learn terminology relevant to English-speaking business environments. It was from this beginning that Language Xchange Ireland grew into the established business it is today.
In August 2013, Kieran left the company to pursue a senior Human Resources role overseas and Con has continued as Managing Director of Language Xchange Ireland.
Language Xchange Ireland is one of Ireland’s leading language exchange companies.
