How To Say – “I Miss My Mother” in Irish Gaelic (VIDEO)

If there’s something we would like people to celebrate more, that is family. And while you may have something against the commercialisation of these types of holidays, we can’t really say if it’s a bad thing since the phenomenon tends to make them more popular.

Coming back to the main point of this blog post, we should all take a few moments each day or each week to celebrate those who are the closest to our hearts – our family. Be it fathers, mothers or siblings, we should give our best to make them know how much they mean to us.

One of these holidays we really like is “Mother’s Day” and since people in the U.S. are celebrating it on May 14th this year, we thought it was appropriate to make an Irish pronunciation video for the occasion. The following video teaches you how to say “I miss my mother” in Irish Gaelic – who knows, maybe you’ll want to call and tell her that yourself, why not?
