Have any of you been to Glean colim cille.
I plan to be there and will have no car. I am concerned about getting to town to shop and would like to know if I'm biting off too much

You'll be fine without a car -they run a free daily bus into town if you need it. Gleann Cholmcille is fantastic you will love it -b'fheidir go bhfeicfidh mé ansin tú,

Thank you for the reassurance Shane!
I'm 77 and can.t rent a car in Ireland and hope I can hold the walking down to a mile a day. I'm going to be in a self catering at the schools but
must get my grub from town to start with.

Bernard,
How did you decide on a school? I've seen a website loaded with options in Ireland, but have no clue as to quality or appropriateness for my bairns, aged 8 to 14, who are non-Irish speakers (as with me, so far).

Bairn = child. The Swedish word is "barn", one of the many Scandinavian loans found in Scotland and Northern England but not in Standard English. A Scandinavian who doesn't speak English (they are getting rare these days...) find broad Scots incomparably much easier than English.
