Just wondering if there is anything doing in Woodside or there abouts.

Dia Dhuit aMauara (sp?)
I do not live in Woodside but my father-in-law does. He is very fluent in Irish and would be interested. If you find any Irish(language) activity in Woodside, plese let me know so I can inform him.

A Mhicheal:

A Mhaire would be one option. When you address using the vocative (that's that "a" that preceeds names and such)you have to put the "h" after the initial consonant. That's called lenition and it is absolutely pervasive in Irish.

If I could offer one other "critique" it would be to note the spelling below.

Slan agat (although it does sound like "agut".)

Not trying to be a pest, just trying to help.

Le meas,

James

Thank you James. Sometimes I write Irish like it sounds to me and sometimes I say it how it looks to me. As a result I come up with my own dialect: An Gaielge Michil :-)
I appreciate any tips or constructive critiques.

I have not heard of lenition. Is that the same as the seinhiu?

Is ea. Lenition agus séimhu are the same.

Don't worry about the "dialect", if you read some of my attempts as gaeilge you'll see I have my own as well! Unfortunately, I'm the only one who understands it.

Le meas,

James
