  1. A Shiobháin,

    Día dhuit!

    I am trying to figure out how to introduce my wife. That is: “Mise Farrell, agus mo bhean Nancy”, or, “Is í mo bhean Nancy”. Along these lines I am curious about how Irish folk typically introduce themselves. For instance the most obvious to me is something like “Mise Farrell”, or “Farrell is ainm duit”, and the question form being “Cad is ainm duit?”. But I’ve also heard “Cén t-ainm atá ort?”

    Blían nua maith!

    Farrell (nó, Fearghal as Gaeilge!)

    1. Hi Farrell,

      To introduce your wife you could say ‘seo í Nancy, mo bhean chéile’ or seo mo bhean chéile, Nancy.’

      The most common way to introduce yourself in my experience is ‘Is mise Aisling.’

      Athbhliain faoi mhaise!

      Aisling
