The video above is from an Irish chat show. The interviewee is a native Irish speaker who also happens to work at the same TV station.
Bláthnaid Ní Chofaigh was born in Canada, but then raised in Ireland.
In February 2014, she joined a march for Irish language rights. Have a look at the video for her explaining why she joined the march. You’ll get an impression of perspective of the situation of Irish speakers in Ireland.
So what do you think about this? What were your impressions of it?
It’s a light-hearted conversation with some jabs between Brendan (the host) and Bláthnaid.
Don’t forget, by learning to speak Irish, you’re not only showing respect for your own Irish heritage, but also for Irish speakers in Ireland.
