This episode really captured the different feelings I’ve had in my efforts to learn Irish. I love how motivating this episode is, thank you for encouraging us!
I know what you mean! I found this episode really inspiring too, a great reminder to look past the things we find difficult and reach for the beauty.
Go n-éirí an t-ádh leat,
Hi, I have a direct bloodline to at least 1780 in Co Wexford, we came to england in 1869 and still have the surname, I thought ‘its time to learn ‘Irish”, I can at least greet you in French, Spanish, German, Japanese, Chinese and Welsh, now I find that I cant even say hello in Irish, can I be helped ? Thanks, John
Thanks for your comment – and of course you can be helped!!
To start with, here’s a video to teach you how to say Hello as Gaeilge:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pYJjFW80ejM

Hi its Pat Agnew in Invercargill New Zealand here I have no one to practice with but I just need to get brave and do it any way. My father is from Belfast but did not speak it so I feel I should learn this.
That’s great that you wish to learn Irish! Your perseverance is admirable! You can find people to practice with online, including our Bitesize Pobal.
I live in Invercargill too. I’m just getting back into the language for the first time since school and would be happy to meet up for a cùpla focal. Message me if you’re interested.
Hi Eion C I would like to meet up that would be great.
Cool. Here’s a link to my Facebook profile. Message me through that and we’ll work something out.
