Back to the Relative Clauses AND Discussing Fools! Posted by on Mar 31, 2010

(le Róislín) As you may have guessed, this blag will introduce some of the Irish terms for “fool” and will resume our long-awaited (right?) series of irregular verbs in direct and indirect relative clauses.  This is in honor of Lá na nAmadán, the day of fools, April 1.  Amadán is the most basic Irish word…

Seachtain Fhéile Pádraig a Dó: 38 Lí Eile – Céard Iad? Posted by on Mar 16, 2010

So, we’ve covered two out of the alleged “daichead lí den dath “green” – “glas” and “uaine.”  Well, three, if we count “glasuaine” (vivid green).  Oh, and yes, we’re still on “sos” (break) from the irregular verbs.  I haven’t forgotten them and am actually “ar bís” to get back to them, since I just love…
