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,
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?
Thanks very much for the comment Robert. I'm glad to hear you liked the photos. Actually, those ones were taken by my sister who travelled to Ireland 2 years ago.
As you, I just can't wait to visit Ireland myself. I've been waiting for it for the last 13 years!
By the way, hope you're having a nice weekend and a lovely Easter.
Finally, I got the opportunity to chat with Bernard yesterday night, and I got the correct spelling for what iwas called the *White Guinness* ====> Breó ...! (Sorry, but the other night, I had the wrong spelling, as you can see..!) It turned out to be a wheat beer...
In the last paragraph on the following link, you'll find more details :
We didn't make to the parade this year, my dad just had
heart surgey. The weather was terrible rain cold and in the 50's. I just went to hear my friends the Irish Xiles play for awhile in
St. Charles after work wasn't to bad. They had to go back and play in downtown St. Louis at the Dubliner from 9- midnight.
But I didn't want the headache of driving in the city and finding a place to park down their.
What does "Tráthnóna maith agat! Fáilte go LiveIreland agus Grúpa na Gaeilge!" mean in english. I hope your group can teach me irish. How should I start? Thanks for friending me.
Hope you had a great St Patricks Day.
