I've decided to put what I'm good at to use. I'm starting Intensive Irish Leaving Cert Classes in September in the greater DCU area. Please spread the word. Not letting my fluency or degree go to waste. Go raibh míle!

Ok - I met ~a dozen folks in the past 6mos. who want to learn either Irish or Gaelic or both. I've told them I'll pass along what resources I'm aware of, as they all said they weren't finding things, and I've found a good bit - but I bet you know of more

Oh my God yet another day of ‘get rid of irish’ or ‘too many people are scientifically illiterate’ or ‘learn mandarin/german instead.’ Last I checked it didn’t have to be either/or and funnily enough I know plenty of Irish speakers who can do all of the above.

Last night in Galway - one guy tells me Irish is a dead language & the other mansplains Irish to me for a half hour (“did you know Irish has no word for yes?") - all because I told them I'm doing a PhD in Irish language technology Sexism + bashing, together at last 💕

Dear Irish-speaking Twitter, would anyone be kind enough/willing to translate a poem into Irish for me? We would love to have it read in both English and Irish at our wedding in a few weeks. Please retweet for love! ?

I am more than ready for the revolution of the Irish language. Let's do one thing a week to show our government that our native language is too important to be not compulsory in schools. This weeks task - if you use a Bank of Ireland ATM - úsáid an rogha atá trí Ghaeilge

I'm assuming that if someone can get an exemption from that they won't also be studying French, German, Italian or Spanish?
