I'm gonna assume that's the retarded slogan of the IRA. Irish RetArds. It's

Tiocfaidh ár lá

which means:

Our day will come

I dont think that was the intention of the writer as I am American and he is Irish, but thank you for the translation.

Because he is young and arrogant. Both, I hope, will resolve with time.

That's a nice use of personification there James; so my "youth" and "arrogance" ( see how kind I am, I even turned them into nouns for you ) will resolve with time. To be honest if anything would be resolving, I would've assumed it would've been mise doing it. It's nice to see you have hope though, unfounded hope albeit, let's just call it optimism that one day I'll fit into your little mould. I suggest you don't hold your breath.

In response to Shay, I like to make smart remarks 'cause it's fun. I don't do it to offend, but in this case here, I don't care either way becuase the IRA are in fact retards. They put a bomb in a town that will kill more Catholics that Protestants. Ignoring the evil for the moment, the logic isn't of immaculate inteligence. If I had a problem with slugs eating my flowers, I wouldn't go out and kill the bees.

Phil,

It is undeniable that your youth will resolve with time. As one who has tread that path I can assure you there is nothing you can do to avoid it.

As for your arrogance, that too, my friend will most likely resolve with time. Note, however that I say "most likely". There is the distinct possibility that you will be just as arrogant in your later years as you are in your youth. The difference is that concessions are made for your behaviour now based upon your youth. That will not remain the case as you grow older. You will simply be known as a jerk, then as a curmudgeon and finally as a bitter old corpse.

What frustrates me is that you are bright, gifted and doggedly determined. All of these are traits that I greatly admire. Your delivery of these traits, however, is more often than not offensive to those of us who participate regularly on this site. It isn't my mold that I'd like to see you fit into better. It is the mold of acceptable societal behaviour. I'm not the only one who calls you to task for your responses. Just do a quick search of your postings and you'll find many who share my view.

Having said that, I will also say that I have learned a bit about Irish from your posts. You have much to contribute. It is such a shame that your demeanor stands in the way of all you have to offer.

Le meas,

James

Looks like a difference of opinion. I suppose we'll have to just agree to disagree.

-Jerk

-Curmudgeon


-Bitter Old Corpse

Is do do mholadh atá James a Phil agus ní bhraithim go raibh Shay glan in d'éadan. Is daoine gnaíúla iad.

An Corcaíoch thú a Phil? Ar shásaigh cluiche an Domhnaigh thú? Ba spéis le daoine anseo roinnt de do scéal féin, mura mhiste leat.
Tuigimid nach bhfuil tú chomh sean leis na cnoic ach sin an méid. Cén bhliain a bhfuil tú arís agus an múinteoir Gaeilge seo atá agat, cé as é?

Beagán do mo mholadh, b'fhéidir.

Ní Corcaíoch mé. Táim in Áth Cliath. Ní rabhas ag féachaint ar an gcluiche Dé Domhnaigh, ní maith liom féachaint ar spóirt ar an dteilifís, ní bhíonn aon atmaisféar ann dom. Níl aon suim ag éinne anseo cloisteáil faoi "mo scéal". Mise an buachaill óg a bhíonn ag cur isteach ar gach éinne i gcónaí. Táim sé bhliana déag d'aois anois, agus mo mhúinteoir, is as Áth Cliath d'eisean freisin.

An bhfuil spéis ag éinne eile de do mhuintir nó de do ghaolta sa Ghaeilg? Ar chuir tú féin aon spéis i ndreamanna ar nós Choláiste na bhFiann http://indigo.ie/~cnb/ nó Feachtas http://homepage.tinet.ie/~feachtas/?
Tabhair faoi deara go bhfuil Fionnghlas luaite ansin ag muintir 'Feachtas'. Feicim stócach eile a scríobhann isteach anseo, Chris Doyle, go bhfuil an Teastas Sóisearach curtha de aige i mbliana. B'fhiú don bheirt agaibh cuimhneamh ar rud éigin a thosnú más i mBÁC eisean chomh maith. B'fhéidir go gcabhródh an múinteoir sin agatsa le gluaiseacht de bhur gcuid féin a chur ar bun, cá bhfios?
