How To Say – “Sorry” in Irish Gaelic (VIDEO)

Some people find that saying “sorry” isn’t something they can do, or at least it’s something really difficult to tell someone that they’re sorry and acknowledge their guilt. We don’t think this should be the case. If you did something wrong and saying “I’m sorry” is in order, then you should absolutely do it.

If not, you’re just lying to yourself.

Many people think that saying sorry is a sign of weakness but others rise up to the situation at hand and do what’s right. There are some pluses and minuses to saying “sorry” because one may say it so it sounds like an apology, but in fact they have other feelings.

We’re not here to debate if someone is really sorry when they apologise, but we’re here to help you learn. If you want to learn Irish Gaelic, choosing the Bitesize method and starting slow, at your own pace is probably the best option. That’s where our free videos come in play.

  1. Hello! Could you please tell me how to say I am not sorry? I always apologize for things I should not, Canadian in me I suppose. I want to remind me of the strength of my distance heritage.

    Thanks so very much!
