How is your irish?
Níl a fhios agam.
Passable! I'd have gotten an A in higher level back in the day. I wouldn't be as líofa as I was then, but I'd get by. Went to the gaelteacht many summers back in the day. Good times!
I can say the hail Mary and our father. Pretty handy now I'm an atheist.
True But I want a more general sample.
Tá brón orm, ní féidir liom labhairt Spáinnis.
Think I snuck an honours A in the Leaving Cert. Which possibly says far more about the curriculum than anything...because I'm embarrassingly weak at it, despite living between Coolea, Ballinskelligs and Dingle. I'd love to see it thrive, I'm a huge admirer of those who learn it and use it, I think Sean O'Riordan was a genius of poetry...but can't pretend to be fluent...
Erm nil mise Gaelige an mhaith.
Yes to my shame my Irish is that bad.
Fair play You are like my cousin.
My godfather is from the Donegal Gaeltacht. His family grew up speaking it. But I can barely understand his English!
Two of the ladies in my mother's knitting group are gaelgoirs
I did higher level in school prolly not as good as you though by a long shot
The thing is you can rote learn it off pretty much. That's what i did.
I like the way the culture of the language is going now though. TV Lurgan is so colourful.
It actually makes me wanna learn.
