Tá 20 bliain ann ó bunaíodh Teach na Gaeilge agus ba dheis iontach é d’alumni an tí, cairdeas a athnuachan agus aithne a chur ar na mic léinn scoláireachta reatha. I measc na n-aoieanna a d’fhreastal, bhí alumni ó Thaigh na Gàidhlig, Ollscoil Ghlaschú, rud a léirigh an dlúth- chairdeas idir an dá scéim. D’eagraigh iar mhic léinn Theach na Gaeilge cluichí, amhránaíocht agus damhsa le linn na hócáide, rud a chinntigh go raibh oíche den scoth ag cách.
