I am proudly to say that the singer is my husband...he sings, writes songs and plays the guitar. The tape is a bit tinny...but it gets the idea across. We spend 4 weeks in Ireland last summer. We started off at Dublin went south to Kinsale then up the west all the way to Westport with a stop at Aran Island...with many towns in-between. Loved it and want to go back so back. That concept money does get in the way for a return trip so fast. Went to your website on language. Me I'm dyslexlic and I struggle with other languages. But my husband he does well with language and I know that he will be very interested in the site you posted...then I learn from him. Will be posting slowly pics of our Ireland trip over time....I took a total of 2,000 by the time I was done...how can one not capture those moments of nature, people, beauty and wonderment? I enjoyed your pictures. How did you get your pics to post the way you did? Nice! When my Jim has a free moment I will take him to your website and we will visit more...you have many interesting pieces of pics, art and music to explore. Now I will ask you to teach me...as you write the gaelic language please give me the translatsion....I loved it when I was there (sounded German to me) and am interested.
Looking over your site...nice and enjoying your choice of musicl. I haven't had as much time to give to my site. My husband plays guitar also and Ising along with him...mostly campsites and occassionally a gig. I'm here in Nevada, totally the opposite of MA...but want to visit one day. We did go to Ireland last summer for 4 weeks and loved it. Slowly putting up my pics as the time goes by. So where do yo plan on going to in Ireland...where do your people come from?
I`ve been read the information of the group you have created to learn the Irish language.
I have some questions about it, if you please could answer to me I will be grateful.
- we only learn to write, or could we learn to speak to?
- My English its not very fluent, will this be a difficulty to learn Irish Language?
- will it be to late to start?
Nice music in here!
Your very kind Robert, and yes sometime soon I hope to get on the chat line. I first have to figure out how. ha ha... I'm not always that smart about figuring things out on the computer. The baby you see me holding in the picture is my first grandchild. He is 2 1/2 months old and I keep him Monday thru Friday, every day from early morning till evening. So I stay so busy with him its hard at times during the week to get on, but as he naps and week-ends roll around I hope to be able to chat onling. Also I'm happy to hear about your new addition ! it's a new experience for us, but it's wonderful ! I'll have pictures of our area before long. Alot of Irish and Scott Irish live in our part of the country. That's how Blue Grass got started, the Irish here. Talk again soon ! Your friend, Cindy
Hey! Wow, I've been away for too long... My tiny laptop I use for internet is messed up hardcore, so I haven't been able to get on for a while. Not to mention that the new filtering system for the internet here at my highschool had this site blocked until I demanded (begged) that they unblock it. Anyways, got to go, bell is about to ring. Talk to you later!
Lovely to heare from you. The wonders of technology
where would we be without it these days !!. Like you
I love the irish music my father God be good to him
would sing all the time. I remember as a lad the days working wih him on building sites and he was always singing some bit of a song or other. I have been giving the kids a good dose of Luke Kelly and the Dubliners recently. Being a Dub. I have a special place in my heart for their music having spent many good an sometimes tough years in Atha Cliath.
All the best,
Wow i really liked the design of your page. The music, only time from Enya, with the picture slide show make a really nice ambience. There a kind of historical of the past for the future feel that immerge from it
Dia duit, Robert! Mise Kathleen. Go raibh maith agat for the welcome and for the compliment. As you might've guessed, I know a bit of Gaelic...so my apologies for the "half n half" verbage of this note. Slan!
I was under the impression that Breó was available in Ireland, and it was only a matter of time before we could get it here on this side of the Atlantic... But from what I've gathered (wikipedia => Guinness), it seems the Breó adventure hasn't been a great success story... so chances are we'll never get the opportunity to taste it here... :-(
No surprise, in a sense wheat beers generally have such a distintive taste, that it is not systematically that a Guinness draught lover will love a wheat beer as well...!
Oh, btw, I was surprise to look at the great variety of beers Guinness is (or has been) brewing, though..!!! I'd love to go in Dublin at least once in my lifetime to taste it on site..!
Thanks for the invite! I'm not fluent either, though my husband and brother-in-law are! I can speak quite a bit, but without the help of an Irish dictionary I am not so good at spelling. What language books/programs are you using? I have "Now You're Talking" which is about the closest to the Donegal dialect that I can get. Also- how do you get the fada above your vowels when you type?
