I'm a beginner at learning the language and looking for an Irish speaker to perhaps meet from time to time in St. Thomas.... Any ideas?

Of course the Irish have been in that neck of the woods for a long time. Here's Humphrey O'Sullivan writing about
the "dubh bán" Irish-speakers of Montserrat in 1830...


Is clos domh gur ab I an teanga Gaodhalach us teanga mathara a Monsearrat san India shiar ó aimsir Oilebher Cromuil, noch do dhíbir cuid de clanna Gaodhal ó Eirinn gur an oileann sin Montserrat. Labartar an Gaoidhilge ann le daoine dubha agus bána. Muise mo ghradh croid na diberthaigh bochta Gaodhalacha; cia dubh bán iad, is ionmhuin liomsa clanna Gaodhal.
