Watch video on the history of the Irish language

The video is all about the Irish language (Irish Gaelic).

What we love about it is that it features some speakers who have come from countries other than Ireland, and they’re telling you what they love about Irish.

    Just gorgeous to see such enthusiasm and yep the F word reared its ugly head, but with an Irish accent perhaps it was little less offensive. And even more amazing – I could understand some of the words! Yay! Hope we see more of his progress.

    • Yes, I agree that the language can be a problem; however, I appreciate your making the best of it. That is awesome that you could understand some of the words. Care to share which ones?

    The first video, called “History of the Irish Language” didn’t have any bad language in it. I like what one of the women said about how every language is a different way of thinking and that makes it unique. I find the Irish language fascinating. And I also first became interested in the language because of Irish music. I think it’s some of the best music in the world!

    Some of the language is strong, I agree, but also a part of everyday life in Ireland. I am most appreciative of you uncovering why it is so important for me to have a basic understanding of Irish. It is the language of my ancestors and a part of their lives handed down to me. I honor them by knowing their native form of communication.
