Biddy Early was an absolute legend in her own right. She shows us what resilience is, in the face of an oppressor. Her ability to heal people drew people to her.
Of particular interest to us is whether she spoke the Irish language. Her Wikipedia entry states:
With her family and friends she spoke Irish, but she had some knowledge of English.
Thanks to Ben about asking about Grow membership, which is open right now. You can study the Irish language with our online Irish language courses at your own pace. And practice with others with Bitesize Pobal, our private learning community for Irish language learners. Check out our Bitesize Irish memberships and sign up today.
