Tá mé go bloganna as Gaeilge i dtosach!

Tá mé anseo anocht ina mBaile Ui Murchú, le mo chairde an-mhaith in aice leis an Bóthar na bhFállai, ceantar stairiul Bheal Feirste Thiar. Ar dtus, chuaigh mé a Luimhneach ar an gColaiste Mhuire gan Smál. Thug mé an paipear faoi Horslips. In éigsean, d'fhoglaim Gaeilge ar an Oideas Gael ina Ghleann Cholm Cille go alainn mór ina nDún na nGall ar feadh coicis é. Beidh mé ag dul go dtí mBaile Atha Cliath riamh deireadh seachtaine seo. Tugfaidh mé an paipear eile-- mar eagsula go domhan-- faoi ábhar le cosuil! Ansin, tá bron orm ag abair agaibh, fhillfeadh mé ar an gCathair na n-Aingeal.

Bheul, tá mé gconai i gCalifornia Thior, tir ro-teas seimreadh seo, go deimhin. Is maith liom Eireann nios mó! Bhainn sult me as an-leathanta saoire, ceart go leor. Tá Oideas Gael áit go hiontach. Scriobhfiann mé go mór nuair beidh mé ag dul abhaile.

Níl focloir agam inniu, mar sin bigi go bog é agam. Slán go foill, critiulaí nios lú agus Gaeilgoirí de mo croi.... Seaghán (aka mise féin)

I'm starting blogging in Irish.


I am here tonight in Ballymurphy, with my good friends near the Falls Road, the storied district of West Belfast. At the start, I went to Limerick at Mary Immaculate College. I gave a paper about Horslips. As a student, I studied Irish at Oideas Gael in greatly beautiful Glencolmcille in Donegal for a fortnight. I will go to Dublin after this weekend. I will give a paper-- a different one on the topic-- about the same material! Then I am sorry to say to you all, I will return to the City of Angels.

Well, I'm living in Southern California, a very hot land this summer, indeed. I like Ireland more! I enjoyed my holidays, for sure. Oideas Gael is a wonderful place. I will write more when I go home.

I don't have a dictionary today, therefore I am easy on myself. See you later, better critics and Irish-speakers from my heart! Seaghán (aka "Himself").

Glad we got our our money's worth on that hell you put yourself through. I hope you are never away from me for this long again though. Way worse than the wife cancellers.

Bloganna as Gaeilge indeed. Actually I held this to mirror and could read something about Layne spending too much on kitchen appliances...

Best and envy to you Murphy from the redwoods.

Yo a Fhionnchú, cathain a mbeidh tú i mBaile Átha Cliath? Nó an bhfuil tú imithe cheana féin?
