Want to learn a little Irish?

Happy St. Paddy’s week!

As you well know, later this week, everybody’s about to be Irish for a day! So I thought I’d share a few fun phrases for you to whip out to prove you’re the real deal!

If you’ve read my Hearts Out of Water series, you’ve probably noticed the chapter titles in Irish. They were translated by two of my friends who are native Irish speakers.

The parts of Ireland where the language is still spoken is called the Gaeltacht. Learning the language is also part of the school curriculum for Irish kids all over the country, but most of my Irish friends are about as proficient as I was in high-school Spanish. 😉

Irish is a beautiful language, and many of us have Irish roots, so let’s spread it a little farther, shall we?

Irish language

What do you think? Confusing, huh? Especially those pronunciations!

I better get back to writing now. Slán go fóill! Goodbye for now!
