Tá brón orm, ach ní thuigim cad é atá tú a rá anseo. Maybe imirt has different meanings in other dialects, but I only know it as the verbal noun of imir "play", so to me this reads "playing thanks with new people" and don't know how to interpret that.


Maybe it was meant to be "buíoch" rather than "buíochas", so "Is there anyone here called Domhnallín (who is) thankful for a new person to play with?". Am I close, a Bhriain?

I'm a native English speaker so if my Irish fails and we have to fix it in English that's fine. I want to attempt to speak Irish as much as possible, but if my ability level should be taken to a different thread, (or the rubbish bin) please don't hesitate to send me there! :D


Dia dhuit agus fáilte a Bhriain! :) Tá áthas i gcónaí orm fáilte a chur roimh foghlaimeoirí nua, tá súil agam go mbainfidh tú fónamh as an fóram.

If you would like corrections we can do our best to provide them when replying to your posts and feel free to ask any specific questions you have here (in Irish or English). If you are following a specific course and want to keep a running blog or you just want a place to keep all your questions for easy reference you might want to start a thread of your own (e.g. "brianJ - Gaeilge" or something).



Go raibh míle maith agat. Sin é fíor-cabhrach. Bhí mé ag foghlaim le mé féin deich mí agus tá áthas orm a fuair mé an áit seo.

Tá áthas orm bualadh leat, a Ciarán12. Is é mo chailín ar saoire i mBaile Átha Cliath inniu!

Tá mé tuirseach tar éis obair, ach tá mé [excited?] mar gheall ar an fóram. Beidh mé ar ais amárach.

(Corrections or suggestions are always welcome, and I'm grateful to anyone who takes the time to provide them.)

As for the other post - I responded to a question that had been deleted when my reply showed up. I edited my post to remove my answer to a question that no longer existed. I thought perhaps someone was messing with me or playing a trick/joke (all in good fun of course) but wasn't sure how to say that. At this point, I'm more confused than you are. :?


Ná bí buartha faoi. Cén t-ainm atá air "play a trick" i Gaeilge? D'fheidfadh a beith ina frása úsáideach.

Is é "deas bualadh leat" an leagan cainte is minice a úsáid as Gaeilge é. 'Sé "a Chiaráin" an fhoirm ghairmeach ar an ainm "Ciarán" (agus ná bac leis an "12" a chara :wink: ). Féadtar eolas ar an gcópail (go háirithe ar na cásanna ina n-úsáidtear í) a léamh anseo.

Tá a lán nósanna ina bhfuiltear in ann "excited" a chur i gcaint. Déarfainnse "tá mé tógtha leis an fóram" sa chás seo.

"Mealladh a bhaint as duine" nó "cluain a chuir ar dhuine", de réir an fhoclóra seo.

Ní raibh mé ag ar chúrsa Gaeilge. Is iad na huaireanta ag an obair ar fad, agus is é an rud is éasca a éisteacht le podchraoltaí. Thosaigh mé le "Easy Irish" agus "One Minute Irish".
Fhoghlaim mé cad is féidir liom ar YouTube. Éistim le "Raidió na Gaeltachta" ach tá sé anuas sa mhullach orm.

Tá sé deacair rud éigin i idir a aimsiú. Is breá liom ceol agus is é "TG Lurgan" is fearr liom. Tá mé foclóir "Focalbeo" Béarla Gaeilge, agus téacsleabhar darb ainm "Buntús na Gaeilge". Úsáid mé iad nuair is féidir liom.


Tá rud éigin ba mhaith liom a rá, ach beidh mé a aistriú go Béarla.

Irish is a fun and interesting language, and I really enjoy the challenge. Nearly all my family came to America from Ireland, so in a way it ties into my roots. But to be perfectly honest I am the type of person who always needs problems to solve and new things to understand, even if the pursuit is not always practical or the most directly applicable. I am a neuroscientist interested in the electrical properties of neurons and neural networks and how they process and send information. The structure of the Irish language forces me to think about information differently, so I think it is a good exercise. Especially so during long dissections or the boring and tedious parts of my experiments when my eyes and hands are busy. (It's also what has kept me away from the forum for a while - so if I suddenly disappear for a while I will be back, it just might take a while!)

You're still translating too literally, but you're getting better. Cé na teangacha eile a rinne tú staidéar orthu?

Go raibh maith agat.

Tá mé ag déanamh staidéir ar Rúisis, cód ríomhaire, agus teoiricí matamaiticiúla eolais. Gá mé gramadach fós, os cionn focail. Ta sé inspéise é conas cuir siad le cheile. Beidh mé ag tosú le snáithe nua mar tá mé ag foghlaim.

Le do thoil, inis dom beagan faoi do chuid féin.

Táim tar éis ranganna Gaeilge príobháideacha a chur ar bun le cainteoir dúchais ó Bhaile Átha Cliath. Beimid ag bualadh le chéile gach Satharn agus chur sé iontas orm an méid Gaeilge a bhí mé in ann labhairt - bhíomar ag labhairt le chéile ar feadh uair an chloig go leith trí Ghaeilge amháin (nó beagnach), agus thug sé sin an muinín dom labhairt le m'athair as Gaeilge níos minice freisin. So, 'sé bun is barr an scéal é go bhfuil i bhfad níos mó Gaeilge labhartha im' shaol anois! :D

Tá suíomh ar leith ina bhfuiltear in ann teacht ar theagascóirí chun ranganna a shocrú, bhain mé úsáid as. Ní raibh sé saor in aisce, ach ní raibh an praghas ró-dhona ach a oiread.

Ní móide go bhfuil moll Gaeilgeorí sa Chatalóin, nach ea?


Cinnte nach raibh agus mise thall ansiúd, agus ní raibh sé amhail is nach raibh mé ag féachaint le teacht orthu!

Ach scéal eile - táim díreach t'réis post nua a thosnú mar "Bainisteoir na ndíoltóirí" i gcomhlacht aistriúcháin, so tá daoine as ceithre cneas an domhain faram an lá ar fad, táim i mo bhuaic! Oh, agus tá duine acu ina Gaeilgeoir. Bhuel, Gaeilgeoir neamhdhúchasach atá inti, ach tá Gaeilge níos fearr aici ná mar atá agamsa ar aon nós, so beimid ag baint úsáide as ár gcúpla focal san oifig, le cúnamh Dé.

Ach ar aon chaoi, cad atá ar bun agat faoi láthar, a Dhómhnaill? Céard atá ar intinn agat a dhéanamh ar son Oíche Shamhna?

B'fhearr an oíche sin ná an oíche a bhí agamsa, bhí mise gafa i gcóisir oibre gan bréagéadaigh orm (mar a bhí ar gach uile duine eile), agus níl aithne maith agam ar éinne agus mise gan a bheith ag obair sa chomhlacht ach leis an seachtain aníos.

I can only make about the half of it.

"Ireland sucks" Donnie is ainm liom. ("My name is Donnie")
"Sometimes I eat my own poop." Is maith liom... ("I want...")
"Joe, you're sexy." Joe is ainm liom ("My name is Joe".)

Hopefully Ciarán will understand more.
