How about a little more practice with the parts of a bicycle, to follow up on the recent post on páirteanna rothair (nasc thíos)? As you may recall, that post was inspired by the saga of octogenarian travel writer Dervla Murphy’s travel account of cycling from Ireland to India. Alone! On a bicycle with one functioning speed!! And in 1963!!!
Today we have the same graphic as in the previous post, but with most of the letters left blank. If any of you really want to quiz yourself harder, you can, of course, blank out any of the remaining words or letters, and increase the dúshlán [challenge; remember: silent “s” because it’s “lenited,” so this is pronounced something like “doo-hlawn”].
The instructions given above are in the singular. Líon isteach na bearnaí. If you’re using this in a classroom exercise, you might want to make it plural: Líonaigí isteach na bearnaí.
So here’s the template. Áth mór ort! Tá na freagraí thíos.
