We have a winner of our Bitesize Irish Album Giveaway.
Comhghairdeas le hAnna.
Congratulations to Anna.
Her comment explained her interest in the Irish language and in all things Celtic.
“I have studied Celtic mythology and Celtic literature at university and have
had a keen interest in the language for a long time now since I first heard it; it
has such a beautiful romantic sound. I’ve also just finished writing an Irish
faerie tale based on the Sidhe but I got help with the few Irish phrases I added; I
had to use a translator. It would be marvelous to write a tale in Irish someday
and it would be fabulous to read some of the old tales like “The Dream of
Oengus” or “The Wooing of Etaine” (my favourites) in the original Irish text.”
Wishing you every success with your Irish faerie tale, Anna. I will forward the link for the album to you tomorrow, and before long you will be on your way to conversing in Irish.
Thank you to everyone who entered the giveaway and for all your insightful comments about the Irish language and your wonderful reasons for wanting to expand your knowledge of this ancient tongue.
Slán agus beannacht,
(Goodbye and blessings)
