A Chairde,
Can some kind person tell me how to say
"What are your hobbies/pastimes?"
in Connacht dialect. I can only find this in Ulster.
If you can help, please e-mail me at
MCailin3@aol.com
Go Raibh Maith Agat!
Miriam

Can you tell us the Ulster version you have, please? A more or less "standard" way of asking this is:

Céard a dhéanann tú mar chaitheamh aimsire?

The "what" word does tend to vary from region to region, with "céard" mar common in Connacht, "cad é" in Ulster, and "cad" in Munster. I don't think the rest is very strongly marked for dialect.

First time here and need help with a class that I am taking. I need to know how to say the following:

I am having a great time;

Thank you so much;

No;

This is such a delightful country.

Thank you for your help with these four things -- I found everything else on your site.
