“English Every Day” Campaign for Unlearning Irish

Unlearn Irish

Limerick – 1st April 2024

We didn’t see this coming!

The Irish language has become much more popular in recent years.

The overwhelming success of building a worldwide community around the Irish language has brought its dark sides.

The Irish language is popular. Too popular, in fact.

Irish has become synonymous with general “coolness”.

Introducing our new English Every Day campaign to help people unlearn Irish!

The revolutionary method is centred around:

  • Listen to monotonous English language tapes for three hours per day to help you erase your knowledge of Irish.
  • Zoom calls with fluent monolingual English speakers
  • A new app with hourly reminders to not learn Irish – keep up your motivation by building a streak!

With this method, 9 out of 10 participants forgot how to say “Dia dhuit” in Irish after just one week!

You can unlearn Irish. Most people quit and they don’t allow themselves to quell their inner curiosities. We believe in you!

Click here to sign up for our revolutionary Unlearn Irish course.

P.S. Thanks for all your humour on this April Fool’s Day. We love our community and your passion for the Irish language through Gaeilge Gach Lá.

      1. Oró! Oró! Oró!
        (I’m trying to say “three cheers, with my limited (for now) Gaeilge without resorting to online translation, so…forgive me if it comes out sounding stupid! 😉 )

  1. Nice try, Eoin! You almost had me.
    I was momentarily reminded, painfully, of a derogatory (and hopefully minority) comment that I heard recently, about the prevalence of Irish being spoken in Belfast in recent years.

    Interesting to see the use of “achan”, in Joe’s comment below. As an Irish language novice, it’s the first time I’ve seen it used, as an alternative to “gach”. I’m led to believe that it’s a corrupted coupling of “gach” with “aon”, but I’m open to competing opinions.

    Le meas,

  2. Never ! Can’t get enough learning of Gaeilge.. My 18 th century ancestors forsook Gaeilge and accepted “the king’s shilling by dropping the O in my surname and anglicised the name by changing to Reilly.

    I’ve reversed this by bringing back the O in my family name of O’Reilly.

    Labhair Gaeilge linn achan lá !

    My first thoughts were, “Why do folks always need something to protest against? It’s probably because it’s too difficult for them so try and stop everyone else from learning it! ” You got me, lol 😆 BÉARLA GACH LÁ 🤣
