Irish Internet Radio and TV from Dublin, Ireland.
Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfeild made history by being the first person to use the Gaelic language from outer space.
Hadfeild tweeted a photo of Dublin at night with the following tweets:
“@Cmdr_Hadfield: Tá Éire fíorálainn! Land of green hills & dark beer. With Dublin glowing in the Irish night.”
This was followed by Irish twitters:
“@CilliandeBurca tweeted “Maith Thú A Cheannasaí! Nice to see there's some Gaeilge in space! :-)”
“@LaurenNiCuinn tweeted “is maith liom do cuid gaeilge. Go raibh maith agat!!!”
Hadfeild's daughter is studying in Dublin so we reckon this was his inspiration behind the cupla focal.
Update: Chris Hadfeild's daughter Kristin, a 26-year-old PhD student at Trinity College’s School of Psychology, says that he will visit Dublin after his latest Space stint
