Dia daoibh a chairde, is mise Mike Kinghan. Is as mBéal Feirste mé ach tá mé i mo chónaí in Oxford ó 1981. Is innealtóir bogearraí ar scor mé, 64 bliain d'aois, agus - go teagmhasach! - tá mé ag foghlaim na Gaeilge ar feadh 64 lá inniu.

Hello friends, I'm Mike Kinghan. I'm from Belfast but I've lived in Oxford since 1981. I'm a retired software engineer, 64 years old and - coincidentally! - I've been learning Irish for 64 days today.

My late mother and three of my father's brothers were good Irish speakers when I was growing up, and others were regularly in our home. I had more pressing priorities then and throughout my career but never shook off the peculiar sense of "not knowing my own language". That's why I'm here.

I studied Latin and French for a few years at school but I've never seriously tried to learn a language before. Please improve my Irish if you can!
