Ireland / Éire

I’m off to Ireland tomorrow for a week of learning Irish and learning about the landscape of Glencolumcile (Gleann Cholm Cille) in Donegal. I’ve been there many times before – every year from 2005 to 2019, but this is the first since then. I’ll probably see quite a few people I know, and meet some new ones as well, and I’m looking forward to it.

I rarely get to speak much Irish in Bangor. There are a few Irish speakers here, and we conversations in Irish occasionally. Apart from that, I sometimes listen to Irish songs and Irish language radio, and have been brushing up my Irish on Duolingo recently.

While I’m there, I probably won’t have a lot of time to work on Omniglot. Normal service will resume after I get back.

  1. I am curious about your opinion of the Duolingo Irish voices for learning. I recently stopped using Duolingo myself because after the voices changed they no longer sounded like what I thought I was learning (not to mention making some exercises impossible for me)
    Thank you for all you do with Omniglot!

  2. Have a nice trip!
    I hope you will have some good news for the site when you return!
