I'm wondering if anyone knows of a place online that sells neckties with Gaeilge on them...you know, the novelty kind...

heh

No, as a teacher I like to dress in all-black but wear crazy, loud or artsy ties. I have some that look like illuminated manuscripts, or have turn-of-the-century french movie posters on them (or smiley faces, etc). But my students ask me about some of the more interesting ones, and so something with Gaeilge words or phrases on it would prompt a "What does your tie say, Mr. V?" and then a "Don't they speak English over there" discussion.

Raising awareness...I'm sneaky like that...

Antaine, I've tried to start discussions like that … but then people just get angry with me and say I'm full of myself and have no idea what I'm talking about. >_x Maybe I should get a tshirt or something … I'd love one that said ná labhair teanga an namhad!

I had some, ok a LOT, of free time to waste today. So I spent several hours of it trying to find someplace to get ties such as you requested. Sadly, it was for naught - none as Gaeilge. The best I could find, of ties anyway, was "Kiss me, I'm Irish." (Blecchhh....)
I fear that, for a tie, you may have to find a silkscreening company - preferably a very small one - or art shop of sort and have one custom made.
Oddly enough, there happens to be one just a few miles from me. Screen Printing USA - 'no job too large or small'. 145 S. Main St. Pittston,PA 18640. E-mail contact spusaking@aol.com.
Or Ph: 570/655/1784 - ask for Maudeen.
Unless you got something closer to yourself.

Aindréas - you mean like the one I have in my shop? http://www.cafepress.com/siopagaeilge
(plug plug)

thank you Maidhe

actually, I say some simple things in Irish to them if they doubt me. I've encountered people who'd never heard of the language before, but I've never had anyone refuse to believe me after I've told them that there is another, older language spoken there...
