A Chairde,
I am wondering if anyone here learned Gaelic in the West of Ireland (particularly the Mayo/ Achill Island region) or has studied with a teacher from that area.
I studied with an Achill native for a couple of years and the accent and pronunciation of words in that region is widely different from other areas. My teacher quit teaching after that and this has lead to some real problems for me when it comes to pronouncing various things correctly in this dialect. I have the hang of most of it (I've continued working on my own for about 6 years years now) but the bh/mh thing always throws me a curve and there are a few other things as well. I love the soft, slow sounds of west Gaelic, but it is impossible to find any tapes in this dialect. Everything seems to be from Dublin or the North.
Is there anyone out there with experience in this area who would be willing to let me ask them a couple of quick questions? It would really help me with my studies.
Thank you so much!
Miriam

There's a daily program on Raidio na Gaeltachta http://www.rnag.ie called "I gCeartlár na nDaoine".

It features interviews with speakers from i gceartlár Mhaigh Eo and is very entertaining. If you listen to this perhaps you might pick up the blas.

Slán,

Oliver.

A Oliver, a chara,

An bhfuil fios agat faoin cén t-am é go bhféadfaidh mé léiriú sin chugam faigh?
Ní raibh mé abalta a fháil in sceideal 'gus bheinn mhaith mór liom a chloisteáil.
Go raibh maith agat, roimh ré,

Nil a fhois agam. Bim ag éistacht ar an idirlín. Tá réiméas codanna le fáil chun íoslódáil ma bhrúann tú ar an gcnaipe "Éist".

Bhuel, I've been listening to that nice RNG program but I still really need some help if ANYONE out there is from the west. I'd so appreciate it if you'd let me know.
