I'm learning Irish. I won't feel comfortable in the language until I can swear. To this end I've just learnt this and thought you, as a discerning and loquacious vocabulist would like also to know:
i mo phol
Meaning "in my hole"
It's one of my favourite go to phrases in English. It's said like you might say "my arse" when saying something isn't true.
More updates as and when they arise.
Repost from pb4p on Twitter:
Like Darragh Adelaide says, far right grifters want to direct your anger away from the super rich and their Government pals and onto minorities. Ná lig dóibh.

Cén fáth nach bhfuil "earworm" ar fáil sa New English-Irish Dictionary ag focloir.ie?
Éistpeist - earworm.

Fluent Irish speakers, honest question, what do you think when you see someone badly attempting to speak/write in irish?
Id like to try to practice putting things into irish but I've this block that goes beyond fear of getting it wrong (and I will get it wrong thats how I learn) , where I feel like Im going to get a hostile or judgemental reaction from fluent speakers.
Id like to know how accurate or not this feeling is. If its an internalised shame or real external phenomenon? #Gaeilge
#Gaeilge What does Inghean leigheann mean here? http://census.nationalarchives.ie/reels/nai000072447/ - 1911 census
Beidh chuile rud go brea, a dhuine! Tháinig mé ar an fuckerín agus réitigh mé é

Well, I'm afraid that I'm not able to read #gaeilge yet but qualifying books:
Fierce New World is a short story compilation by Irish writers.
I haven't worked my way through "Space Navigator and other stories" yet but I believe that is Scifi.
@TabletopScot might be able to suggest Celtic SFF authors.
Táim ar bís faoi Corn an Domhan anocht. Beidh mé sa teach tábhairne don céad cluiche (Aotearoa v an Danmhairg), ach ceapaim go mbeidh mé ag dul go dtí Cearnóg Federation chun an Astráil v Eire a fhéicail leis an slua.
Tá brón orm a chairde Éireannacha, ach beidh mé ag tacú le mná na hAstráile anocht 🇦🇺

Tá an glórphost i nGaeilge imithe ó mo ghuthán (eir). An bhfuil a fhios ag éinne conas í a fháil ar ais? #Gaeilge
Never before have I seen such clear evidence of the State's real attitude towards the language: "Let's dismiss the language and reduce it to the bare minimum, removing any chance to inspire children about it, so it can die away altogether and stop being a nuisance to us Anglophones." #Gaeilge https://www.irishtimes.com/ireland/education/2023/05/17/claim-that-cutting-irish-teaching-hours-will-aid-language-acquisition-defies-logic/
Dia dhaoibh ar maidin! Tá an ghrian ag taitneamh agus tá sé go hálainn amuigh! 🌄
Far be it from me to question Robin Fowler's translation, but the original reads a little differently to me.
"bhíodh a thurus ins gach áit agus fágann an turusóireacht breall go minic ar ghnóthaí eile; agus, go minic, gan mórán de bharr a lán aca."
"he used to be calling in everywhere, and the rambling often left other activities neglected; and, often, with little to show for many of them".
Does anyone remember the Irish language short story about a guy who travels to the future in his currach?
He finds a perfect world where all his needs are met but it's too perfect and he decides to come back.
It's scifi which is why I remember it, and it was on the Leaving Cert in the 90s.
ChatGPT says it's "Imtheachta Óisíní chum an Úbhla" by Seán Ó Ríordáin, 1944. I can't find that anywhere. Did it make that up? It even says the main character is Peadar! Not Oisin.
As I'm more interested in current affairs than sport, I find Tús Áite ón #RnaG works thís way for me - I usually understand the context, and can follow the discussion, and learn terminology, such as diúracán in reports about Ukraine, Príomh-Aoire (not Príomh-Aire) in discussions about the Dáil, etc.
