Should be ‘faoi gceann’ there, horse. ‘Pale Irish’ sticks out like a sore thumb to us native speakers.

Lasagna in the oven. After dinner I'm going to have a long, hot shower. Then I'm going to settle down to watch GOT with chocolate and coke. In the best mood I've been in for at least a week

" i gceann" sounds perfect to my native munster ears. Hope you don't make a habit of embarassing people who are using the language as intended, to be enjoyed.

"i gceann" here too, in my mongrel Irish. No wonder the language is dying with Gaeilge Nazi's still going strong

Employment offer ...I hadn't even started actively looking yet. Knowing that's there if I want it, takes the stress out of it. It's up there with the ideal jobs for me...I thought I should train up before formally applying , just so I have more to offer...but they said they'd love to have me. The fact that I like them is nearly as important as the pay...
