Why do you wnat to seapk Irish. I dont think people gave up speaking Irish. I remember in National school having very good Irish, but as soon as I got to secondary school the system is terrible. Any one out there remember Patsy Gibbons in Davitt College. A "great teacher"(sic) of the Language. And then you have to face into Peig, Christ she would make you wnat to end it all. A lot of people (shinners) enjoy saying the Brits destroyed our old language but in Fact it was a Church of Ireland group in Belfast in the late 1800's who ressurected it. Any ways we are now in europe and our two main export destinations for people and good are UK & US and english is an international language. By the way "YANK" where are you from. I have a question I would like to add to your local city portal.
