“Dance” in Irish

In this video, you can learn the various Irish words for dance and dancing. Both variations below are commonly used in everyday Irish. You will certainly not regret learning these words as they commonly come up not only on TV and radio but also in face-to-face conversations.



Now, let’s use those words in a sentence to say dancing:

Tá mé ag damhsa.
/Taw may egg dow-sa/


Tá mé ag rince.
/Taw may egg rin-keh/
I am dancing

Just add ag before damhsa or rince and you now have a phrase that means dancing.

ag damhsa
