Thanks, John

    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.

    1. Hi Patrick,
      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.
