I tried looking for a Gaelic chat room in Paltalk but it seems that even there there isn't any.

Does anyone know where I can find one, and please answer this only if u really know there is one, cause I'm almost desperate about it.


Thanks.

A Mhichael, a chara,

I've searched for one as well and have found none worth the effort. On a recent posting under another heading the host of the PalTalk site informed me that he had to close it. There weren't enough people to service the site and he became the only moderator available.

Adn mór ort,

Le meas,

James

Well we can determine that each night there would be a room called what ever we want (as long as it has the words Gaeilge, Irish etc...)and it would be open for let's say a couple of hours (I dont care making it myself - maybe in the European section). But my last attempts were in vain, cause no-one entered.

There was more reaction to a Brethonic room that for mine.

If you would like, then maybe you should try putting one yourself, I'll be trying each night starting from today to look for one!

A chairde,
Found the following link to irish chatrooms:
http://www.solaseireann.com/temp/SolasChat.html

Some links don't work, the tír na nóg one works.

For what it's worth ..
Le meas,
Máre

I also found two chat rooms while searching An Spidéal. There is a community/town site that has two chat rooms. I haven't had a chance to try them but the discussion board (similar to this one)is as gaeilge agus bearla so I would think the chat rooms would be the same. The dialect of the region is Cois Fharraige so be prepared for contractions, transmutations and the like.

Le meas,

James

Freagra James
An bhfuil tú ag rá nach dtuigeann tú gaeilge Cois Fharraige agus an bhfuil tú ag tabhairt comhairle do dhaoine é a sheachaint? Tá sé sáthach maith ag cuid againn, muintir Chonnemara.
Go riabh maith agat
Brian

Brian, A Chara,

Your Irish is far better than mine so in the interest of comprehension I'll respond as bearla. By NO MEANS am I suggesting that people avoid the chat rooms or the Cois Fharraige dialect!! I am studying that dialect myself!!

I had the wonderful opportunity to visit Ireland two summers ago and I became thoroughly enchanted with the Connemara region. I completely and thouroughly apologize if I gave the impression that the site or the dialect should be avoided. That was the LAST thing I intended.

My only intent was to make the beginning student (and I am one of them) aware of the nuances of that particular dialect and its variation from what is called "Standard" Irish.

My apologies for any misconception that I may have created. Tá brón orm.

Le meas,

James

there's one at www.craiceailte.com
Usually only has people in it during the evening in GMT. There's definitely people there if you're there at the right times.
