Its a real Shame no-one uses it anymore - cause as Fenian Says, it is a very nice langauge - for example if I wanted to say,

"Running Fast", the Irish Translation would be: "Ag Rith ar nos na Ghaoithe" - literally it means - running like the wind.

Once the majority of Students finish Secondary school, very few people ever speak it again. I'll soon be starting Speaking it again (after 4 - 5 years) with the new job so I look forward. Will also need to start re-l;earning french again - I love that langauge

But at least they've fixed the P40 now :lol:
