It is truly heartening to see CUNY's Irish American Studies Program doing all this good work. As opposed to my old hometown of NYC, my adopted baile aíoch (ballywick) of San Francisco has a large, wealthy, and influential Irish American community that seems to be in a self-induced coma on the importance of preserving its roots. I often wonder if this is a by product of a virtual absence of Amercian Nativism (in both its political and paramiltary forms) out here, as opposed to NYC, where the nativists remained poweful in one form or another for 150 years.


Uair amháin eile: Ádh Mór! I sent this notice out to my Irish Studies list and some friends in NYC and Jersey.

A Mhíchíl,

Feicim go bhfuil FRC ag bun do theachtaireachta. Thuig mé gan dua í, ach seo athrú beag duit:

quote:

Go raibh maith agat do ag scríobh: "An Tíogar Ceilteach"



Go raibh maith agat as "An Tíogar Ceilteach" a scríobh.

I could not recall what was the final outcome on the thread we had using mo chara versus a chara. I keep thinking that I should be able to say "my friend" that way when the vocative indeed calls for using "a" in addressing. Am I right in thinking that to refer to someone as my friend I would need to use the copula? Go raibh maith agat agus gabh mo leithscéal, a chara. :)

Hello,
I was wondering where I can find a website that will translate English to Gaelic?
My husband works with several Irish co-workers & they sometimes tell him something in Gaelic & He wants to try to Shall I say 'have fun & impress them all...

Maybe he could find a phrase & print it out for his office that they all may like!!!

What do you have in mind? Someone here should be able to translate for you.

Tá an cheart agat. "Is cara liom X."

When you are addressing someone a "friend" the "mo" is obvious and therefore implied - if you wanted to say "O friends of Ireland", say - you would say "A chairde na hÉireann".

To emphasise that you are saying "my friend" you could say "A chara liom"

Yu ming is ainm dom..
Hmmm táim ag ceapadh go mbeadh an scannán seo oiriúnach do dhaoine atá im Chumann Gaelach - daoine allúracha ach go háirithe.
Bhfuil a fhios ag éinne siopa timpeall BhAC go bhféadfainn é a cheannach?
Míle!
