Having lived in Galway, I can confirm that it is probably the most Gaelic city in Ireland. On the other hand, it is completely English. (Every single town AND city in Wales are much more Welsh than Galway is Irish)

If you don't seek out any of these Irish speaking pubs, you never ever hear Irish being used in Galway. (Besides, if you coont pubs like An Pucán as Irish-speaking, I definitely disagree)

The sad truth is that no Irish city is Gaelic at all.

A William,
Gaelic is not just Gaeilge. It's to do with your roots and traditions, eg. festivals, music, clothing etc.
A Jonas,
Wales it different nation altoghter, even though it is Celtic like ourselves. It has different customs, traditions, history, sports. You can't compare like with like.


Tóg Bóg é,
Colm.
