Is mise Art, as Corcaigh ó dhúchas mé ach i mo chónaí i Sydney le sé bliana is fiche anois, níl fios agam go díreach ach is dóigh liom gur thosaigh mé ag ath-foghlaim na Gaeilge deich mbliana ó shín. Tá mé sáite inti anois. éistim le saol ó dheas ar RnaG gach lá (Is breá liom Corca Dhuibhne) agus féachaim ar Nuacht TG4 agus cláir nach iad. Táim ag staidéar anois chun a bheith ullamh don Scrúdú TEG leibhéal A2 a bheidh ar siúl anseo i Sydney ag tús mhí an Mheithimh. Tá baint agam le Cumann Gaelach i Sydney chomh maith.


Welcome, Art. As you requested, I deleted your introductory post in the main part of the forum, which you've repeated here.

Dia daoibh!

Is mise Annie, tá mé i mo chónaí in Maryland (Talamh Muire?), i Stáit Aontaithe.

My name is Annie and I'm living in Maryland, in the US. I've been aware of the Irish language since my late 20's and have been trying to learn more of it ever since. Thanks to smart phones and Duolingo, it's been easier in the last year. I've also been listening to music from TGLurgan as well as watching videos.

I find myself trying to mentally translate words and phrases based on what I know, and have tried using it when I'm in church, or when trying to get the kids moving in the morning. Cá bhfuil do bhróga has come in handy quite a bit with my five year old. As well as déan deifir. I'm trying to teach the kids too, little by little.

As I'm a fan of NCIS, I've also attempted, with what I know of Irish and admittedly some google translate, to write down Gibbs's rules in Irish, which is not easy!

I welcome correction, as I'd love to become more fluent. :) I'm told there used to be an Irish class at our local community college, but the teacher moved on.

Fáilte romhat Annie - if you look, there are posted up on the forum a couple of pages that give details of how to learn and use Irish language with your children. For example Forbairt Naíonraí Teo have published 'Basic Irish for Parents and Childminders/BunGhaeilge do Thuismitheoirí agus Feighlithe Leanaí' which is available in either of the three main dialects plus the official standard one as there is a CD included with it.

I'm interested mostly in Connacht Irish, as my ancestors came from the west of Ireland. My g-grandfather came from Clifden, my grandmother's family from somewhere in Co. Cork.

hey everyone, new guy here. I'm full-on Irish, my family is from Tullamore, and finally made it over to Ireland for a long visit last year (and already wanting to get back). I'm here because I want to learn more about Gaelic and the Ogham alphabet. I just want to become more educated about my heritage. I'm looking forward to learning more!
