I am trying to figure out part of the address given by Taoiseach Bertie Ahern at the Arbour Hill commemoration. He started as Gaeilge and switched to Bearla for most of the speech (I am giving it as I read it in the Irish Times online):

... is cúis bróid go bhfuil dul chun cinn chomh mór sin déanta againn, chun an tír a fhorbairt agus chun cearta sóisialta agus eacnamaíochta an phobail a urramú.

Go raibh maith agat.

Dónal

Ah yes, ye olde cúpla-foclachas! Quoth an polaiteoir:

... it is a source of pride that we have made so much progress, to develop the country and to respect the social and economic rights of the populace.

The same crap goes on all over Ireland on big ócáidí móra in Éirinn inniú in ainneoin nár usáidítear Gaeilge formhór den am.Sé mo bharúil ná go bhfuil hypocrites iad go léir. Freisin tá na caintí á scríofa amach ag daoine eile. Cuimhnigh ar seo--A hUachtarán, a Thaoiseach agus gach duine. Tá an-áthas an chorn seo a glacadh ar son foireann na Gaillimhe.

Tugann an nós seo fostaíocht do na Gaeilgeoirí a scríobhann na blúirí do na polaiteoirí ar aon nós. Is buí le bocht an beagán? *osna*

Plus ça change plus c'est la mème chose. :-)

If the Taoiseach hadn't thrown in his cupla focal
it would have been a concern, is he ill? It's
almost expected on major events that Irish politicians
sprinkle a little Irish about. A bit like Latin
at mass.

Brian Lenihan wrote an article a few days ago regarding the 75th anniversary of Fianna Fáil. He mentions in the article, in irish, that irish was still alive in the new millenium. The whole article was a big backslapping exercise for Fianna Fáil, as one would expect, but thankfully, he didn't have the audacity to credit Fianna Fail with this miraculous survival of the language, just stated that it ws still alive. Although, I suppose you can't really blame Bertie for a lack of irish fluency. The poor chap's still struggling with english....
