How to say Happy Easter in Irish (Video)

Easter in Ireland is widely celebrated both as a religious and a cultural holiday.

Irish Easter is rooted in Christian tradition and many people will rejoice as Lent is over and they can return to whatever they gave up for Lent, if they so wish.

Many commemorate the 1916 Easter Rising, particularly on Easter Monday, by attending commemorations. The Resurrection of Christ and the concept of the resurrection of Ireland, included the revitalisation of the Irish language, are symbolically linked at Easter.

Learn in this video how to greet one or more people at Easter.

With phonetic pronunciation:

Happy Easter! (to one person)
Beannachtaí na Cásca ort
/Byan-okht-ee nah Kaw-skah ort/

Happy Easter! (to more than one person)
Beannachtaí na Cásca oraibh
/Byan-okht-ee nah Kaw-skah or-ee [or-uv]/

    1. Hi Brian,

      That’s a shame! Can you use earphones with those computers?
      If not, could you take down the phonetic spelling and practice later on?

      Happy Easter! (to one person)
      Beannachtaí na Cásca ort
      /Byan-okht-ee nah Kaw-skah ort/
