To be able to express yourself in Irish Gaelic, it’s great to build up a vocabulary of questions that you can use when speaking with others. Watch the video above, and here are more notes to help your Irish language learning journey:
cén fáth (Connacht dialect, mostly the north west of Ireland)
cad chuige (Ulster dialect, mostly the north parts of Ireland)
cad ina thaobh (Munster dialect, mostly the south parts of Ireland)
/kod in-a hawv/
“Why are you happy?”
Cén fáth a bhfuil áthas ort?
/Kayn faw ah will aw-huss urt/
Cad chuige a bhfuil áthas ort?
