You may have heard of the Great Famine and how it negatively influenced Ireland’s history. While we’re here to focus on the preservation of the Irish language, we can’t overlook this important event from Ireland’s past.
That’s one of the reasons why we decided to add a new type of video on our YouTube channel – cultural videos. In this week’s Irish culture video, we’re going to talk about the potato (Prátaí).
The following Irish culture video can be watched by Irish speakers and non-Irish speakers (just don’t forget to turn on captions and subtitles on YouTube). Depending on your Irish learning level, you can use the following video to test your skills in the Irish language and let us know in the comments if there are any words you didn’t understand.
