Beidh mé ag dul go dtí Oklahoma an bhliain seo chughainn agus táim ag iarraidh a fháil amach an bhfuil aon chumann gaeilge nó club gaelach ann. Tá sé are eolas agam go bhfuil ceann i Tulsa ach tá sé sin ró fhada ón áit ina mbeidh mé i mo chónaí. An féidir le aon duine mé fhéin a cabhrú?

I`m going to Oklahoma next year and i was wondering is there any irish club or society there. i know there is one in Tulsa but thats too far away from where i will be staying. Can anyone help me?

Pól a chara,
Gach éinne anseo is cabhrach ar fad. B'feider níl fios againn faoi teanga sa Oklahoma ar bith. Is trua mór sin.
Try writing up a generic letter and mailing it to all the universitys you can find in Oklahoma. Even though this Daltaí site doesn't list anything for Oklahoma there may be something out there. Also, check the Daltaí class list for states sorrounding Oklahoma. Write to anyone you find there and explain the lack of information. They may be able to hook you up with people or organizations that are not listed.
Ádh mór,
Bruce

Maith thú a Phóil,

Its about time someone spouted the truth about this list. People only tend to respond when controversy raises its head. Take that thread about the girl who feels only people in Ireland should be "allowed" to learn Irish the only reason people responded to that was because it was a bit controversial. I get the feeling that people on this list are more in it for the gossip and controversy than to help. I know my thoughts on the matter will generate some interest because of the mini controversy this will generate.

Dia dhuit,

It is a shame you feel the need to be hurtful in order to get attention.

I hope you realize how impractical it would be for everyone who did not have an actual answer to write in to say so. You would have to sort through thousands of messages that told you nothing--And that would not have been helpful.

As it is, Bruce took the time to provide what should be common sense--and is not really any 'new' information--even though it was requested so aggressively. That in itself shows how helpful the people who frequent this sight are.

And, yes, I realize I belittle myself by rising to your 'bait'. However, I feel the need to speak up for these people who take the time to run this site and provide helpful answers out of the kindness of their hearts. I do not understand how someone could read through all the translations and grammatical lessons, and still feel this discussion board is not helpful.

Perhaps someone would now help me by providing a saying in Irish that means something to the effect of "Look for the good in others and they will see the good in you."

Slán,

Chris

Ceart is cóir a Chistóir!

I thought you might be interestd in the Irish saying

"An té ná gabhann comhairle gabhadh sé comharc"

Let him who will not take advice have conflict

I know it's not exactly what you were looking for but I think it's rather apt in this case!!

Imagine me surprise when i checked this thread this morning and found out that some of the "friendly" list people had responded, sarcasm was never one of my strong points. Eibhlín, that saying is not applicable seeing as no advice was given. This whole arguement further emphasises my point of the skwabblers and controversy mongers on this list.

Wes, a chara,

At first i could see your point but now this is just getting to be a bit silly, although i do hope that this will generate enough interest so that someone will actually help me in my quest to found a gaeltacht in OKC :P

Eibhlín, a chara,

Go raibh maith agat!
I will write that one down. Tá mé ag folghaim an Ghaeilge anois. And I am already finding this sight helpful in additon to entertaining.

Pól,
I wish you luck getting a group started out west. It is a worth-while venture and much fun.

Slán,

Chris

Im a college student in Ireland and want to work in oklahoma next summer if anyone could point me in the right direction of getting a job there i would be eternally grateful. Its really hard to find something in OKC alot harder than the usual student summer working states and places such as Boston etc.

A Phól,a chara

Do you really think about founding a Gaeltacht in Oklahoma or do you mean an Irish language club? In Canada some Gaeilgeoirí are talking about buying up a few hundred acres for a weekend retreat for the Canadian Irish speakers but I would not consider this to be a Gaeltacht.

Sílim gur Deireadh Seachtaine Gaeltachta atá i gceist aige. Is ar bhealach mar seo a athraíonns brí na bhfocal i dteangacha. Seo an chéad ócáid dhearfa theastaithe den úsáid seo, b'fhéidir.

I think in all honesty that this has gotten a little out of control. Im just a college student looking for summer work in Oklahoma and possibly to check out a few irish events while im there if thats at all possible. I apologise if things have gotten a bit out of hand in this thread.

Perhaps it is but a cultural difference, one that you would well learn in a western US place such as Oklahoma - in America, particularly in the West and the South, we value good manners. It might be considered rude to chide a group of Irishmen for not gushingly responding to a query as to where an American might find a rodeo in Dublin.

Pól,

I live in Tulsa, Oklahoma and am looking for a group of Irish speakers/enthusiasts as well. I've had no luck either. Good luck in OKC, Tulsa is only about 1.5 hours drive from the city, so you may not find it too far away to visit if you have Irish contact info there. Good luck, and welcome to Oklahoma when you get here!

Cyd
