  • This is utter rubbish — education does absolutely nothing for some.

    What about those of us who wish to revert back to the font used in the 1950's and removing the "h"? — I avoid Facebook and Twitter like the plague. I despise these clowns who promote Facebook and Twitter. I live very well without either Facebook or Twitter!

  • Love this, I’m living in the Bronx and wish I could speak GAELIC with others as I love it,being from Donegal in Ireland

    I was born in the US but i am of strong Irish heritage. I've dicided to learn Gaelige to get closer to my roots, which i am very interested in from a spiritual stance as I am a Pagan. I hope one day I can visit Ireland and hold conversation with many native speakers, to get a real feel for such a beautiful language. Im sure there are so many sayings that a student wouldn't learn in a classroom setting, that are half of the languages charm. After learning about its endangerment i have been even more inspired to learn this language. My family assimilated here but forgot who they are.

    I met an old man in Ireland this summer, way out in the middle of nowhere no da ja vu that moment.
    He was dressed old looked old thou his grey hair looked bran new.
    He said he had the oldest name in Ireland..
    His name was older than the Mayan Callander and predates the flood.
    That there once stood an island off the coast of Galway that rests on the sea floor about a mile out.
    His ancestors are named after the island "Hóur"
    That translates into English as Óclóck
    That the Ó'clóck family were responsible for building New Grange.

    Tá mé Sualainnis. Is breá liom Gaeilge! I lived in Co Cork in the late 90s, we pretty much spoke English though.
