I'm watching the oscars, and the man who introduced U2, performing a song from Gang of New York did his into and ended it with what I can only assume was irish. Did anyone catch what he said?

blessings,
Gillian

A cara,
You are correct, Colin Farrell spoke in Irish ( Gaeilge ), it made me proud as it's always good to hear. He said.
Go raibh míle maith agat, agus anois. Which translates as .. Thanks very much, and Now

All the best Gillian
Sam

I caught that too, and I was jumping out of my pants after hearing it, understanding it, and then *realizing* it was Gaelic! I too was very proud :).

Gaelic? Is that another word for Gaeilge? It sounds Scottish.

Phil, a chara,

Yes, "Gaelic" is a term often used for Irish (or even Scottish) in the US.

Slán,

Bradford
