Re: Irish

Saw the topic and thought “Irish - that’s a surprising line of discussion on this site”. Allissa, the difference is surely that one is your own language! But I really wanted to say “Go for it” as a Scot who was brought up in a Gaelic-speaking area but was discouraged from learning the language formally, like many at the time (50s/60s). I was encouraged to learn Latin instead - interesting and useful in its way but spot the living language. I think things are better now in Scottish schools but I’ve got a lot of ground to make up in my spare time. Oidhche mhath agus bonne nuit. 🙂

Re: Irish

Riachtanach means “vital or necessary”

Re: Irish

Does anyone out there in the gealteacht areas want to put me up for six months free board so I can become fluent in Irish???? …..no…. worth a try anyway.

Yeah Bannerman, I haven’t a snowballs chance in hell, but I am a chancer 🙂



WHEN I win the lotto I’m gonna rent out a place in the GAELTACHT and stay there until I am fluent.

Re: Irish

I tell you now it’ll take a lot longer than six months in a Gaeltacht to become fluent in the language, I’m here over a year now and my Irish is improving very gradually, mind you I’m not going to classes, just taking in the everyday conversations which is probably the best way to do it.

Re: Irish

Well, my plan is to win the lotto and not work or anything, just hang around the local shops gossiping with all the ould wans.

until then I guess I’ll keep dreaming. :(
