  1. Thank you for the description and example of the slender “r”. None of the classes I’ve ever taken has given me this one important piece of information. Go raibh an-maith agat!

  2. Your description of the road to An Spidéal and beyond was perfect, and really brought back memories for me. It may surprise you to hear that you don’t need Irish heritage to be interested in Ireland or the Irish language! I have no Irish roots (that I am aware of), but I have loved Ireland for years and look forward to learning even a small part of the beautiful language. Thanks for your work!

  3. I know my family has Irish roots… and I have discovered that there are habits which I only saw within my own family and nowhere else in my community that I am learning are Irish habits! For example my family often says something that we have in abundance we have that thing “galore”. I always thought it was some permutation of glory… like having it “to our glory” until I heard go leor pronounced for the first time, I played that sound file five times just to make sure I heard it right! there are amazing amounts of examples like that one. So, thank you not only for the connection to Ireland,but, to my own immediate family as well!
