I hope it will be permitted to me to ask about Breton here. I have been unable to find any detailed, current information on the state of this language. Maybe it's because all the info is in French? From the little I've heard, Breton has a few hundred thousands speakers, but is kind of a lost case. Can someone point me to some good online info? I'm interested in much more than "oh yeah, it'll be gone in the next 30 years …" Don't there exist organizations and web communities like Daltaí for the rest of the Celtic languages?

Riona, check out this thread here: http://community.livejournal.com/gaeilge/74741.html You can contact the people through their journals.

Diarmo, I do not speak Irish and am not studying it … I understand that you're studying Breton, but your question An bhfuil einne eile? I do not understand.

Lucy, I recall reading that one of the members here was a speaker of Breton. Is that what you are telling me?

A NOTE: Aindréas does not speak Irish, and has not studied it. He understands words from your sentences because he uses an online dictionary. =)

Hi.
Yeah I am a Breton and I speak Breton. Maybe this forum isn't the right place so maybe it'll be better that we write to each other by email or by MSN ?

Tír Chonaill abú!

Diarmo, there is a Breton language conversation group that meets together every Wednesday at the Conradh na Gaeilge Club. They are loads of fun. They teach through French I believe. But they would surely help you to learn more and to contact Breton speakers in Dublin. There's will be a Celtic Night on the first Saturday in March in the Club (6 Harcourt Street BÁC 2) as part of seachtain na gaeilge. Look at snag.ie or www.ionad.org/anclub for more info. Any celtic language/culture interest groups are welcome to come and enjoy the festivities. They had a night there in early November with lovely crepes and Breton dancing and music and everyone is still talking about it. We're looking forward to the evening. Please pass the information to anyone that might be interested.

Colleen
