I've seen a few positive reviews. There are short animated films on BBC, backed up with Websites in Irish, Welsh and Scot's Gaelic.

"Scot's Gaelic" is quite distinct from "Irishman's Gaelic," right?

Bhuel, tá an broadband ana mhaith, ach níl aon broadband in Éireann. Tá muid (Éire) i mblian 450AD mar nuair a buaileann tú 'send' ar do rríomhaire tosaigh a lán monachanna ag scríobh naideanna agus aonanna (0 &1).

Arsa an Bertie Bollocks i nDáil Éireann: "A shure airent cumpúters wonderful things, altogether". Bertie, na tar go dtí mo theach nuair a bíonn na election ag rith. Tógfaidh mé amach 'Papa Shotgun' agus bang! bang! Níl aon taoiseach beo!

Níl sé loadaithe fós...

Tá mé ina luí...

Oíche mhaith...zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

Superb game! Although, the Ulster words are a bit different. Tabla vs bord, mar sampla.

Le meas,

James

broadband = leathanbhanda
in Éireann = in Éirinn

Ní fíor sin. Tá cónaí ormsa i mBaile Átha Cliath agus tá cúpla rogha leathanbhanda agamsa -- Eircom, Wireless... is Eircom atá agam ag an noiméad.

Fear_na_mbróg,
tá a fhios agam nach raibh sé fíor sin! Bhí mé ag 'havin' a laugh' mar tá an soláthar go dona.

Ar do cheartúchán, go raibh maith agat.

I know it is not strictly true, that there is no broadband, but the deliberate actions of Eircom to prevent its roll-out mean only select locations have it. Remember in January 2004 only 4000 people in the Republic had it. Its now only 100,000. As for the statements by Redmond as to the effect 80+ % of lines can take broadband, thats false. So is the 360,000+ figure for take up. Its a lie. Blatent fraud. www.comwreck.com and http://www.irelandoffline.org/home/ outline the machinations of the companies hinderance of a prerequisite for modern telecommunications.

thanks for the correxions

Yes, more than likely you live in Dublin, and assume we in the 'stix' can all go to f**k for as regards normal infrastructural provisions.

2 years ago is still behind Europe in terms of rollout. The few areas that have BB are only 512 kbit (thats less than 64Kbyte; still takes more than 20 seconds to fill a floppy disc -my!, how advanced you are!).

Norn Iron is moving to 100% coverage, the best in europe, and upgrading to 1Mbit (a floppy per second) this year. France offers 8Mbit. Sweden 20Mbit. As for Tokyo...

Only a tiny geographical area are enabled, and most lines we installed too cheaply to take broadband. Besides, get this, no telecoms provider is legally obliged to carry data in the 26 counties. Yes, in the 'silicon valley of Europe' there is no requirement to provide for the internet or any non local digital data services.

Last year, Microsofts Vice-P was in dublin on business. Settling into his room in the Radisson in Stillorgan, we opened up his notepad to log on. Nothing happened. No wifi signal. Asked staff. Shoulders shrugged all round. Didnot know what he was taking about. Asked about a physical BB connexion in his room. Gettign frustrated the staff told him they did not do such a thing, and would like coffe with that? "Shure havint ya a compúter to bee playin' with? What wuddya want such daftness for? No more of your internets!".

And don't go telling me how advanced Ard na Croise is with that new fangled electricity, and stuff. An aeronautic engineering friend of mine, who engages in creating Formula 1 physics simulations, is routinely laughed at by people in Estonia for still having dial-up when at home in Cavan. Hes thinkinga about throwing a line accross the border.

The fact is normal countries have broadband and don't (ala the old Agenda programme) send on the telecommunications minister to, in the face of questioning as to why, by McWilliams, there is (2003) no broadband provisioning, BOAST about that Ireland were the first to bring in a form of digital switching technology in 1992!

Broadband bollocks. If you download mp3s and have a net game on, you will get slow down. Its only 'pretend broadband' for quicker porn download.

Ard na Cruise
PS The Free State in the 1920's illegally unrooted the native Irish speakers who owned the Shannon estuary and all the river bed, which they had legally purchased after the 1904 Avondale Land Act (if I recall corectly), sending in the army and killing a number (3 I think) of them. As fisher people they lost their livlihoods.

Maybe Frank McCourt will write something about them, tho I doubt it. To happy of a story for him.

PPS, the local people further sold a lot of artifacts and crosses and thing to American tourists. Anyone wanna make a quick buck? Root around in your grandaddy's basement. Get an old celtic piece and we'll seem em back to the goverment.

Is breá liom an cluiche, no coincheap an chluiche, ach ní raibh mé in ann na ceisteanna a fhreagairt i gceart. Ní raibh mé in ann drag agus drop a dhéanamh mar shampla cé go raibh an freagra i gceart agam. Is trua sin. Sílim go bhfuil broadband agam, ach bhí sé ciotach, fiú.
