  1. A Shiobhan, go raibh maith agat. Thank you for this video. I have missed you since Aistear started because it seemed all the attention when to that, while the truth is you have been so lovely in revealing the beauty and poetry of the language. I appreciate you so much and just want to say my learning experience is immeasurably richer with your hand of influence.
