Looks like Gaelchultúr has vastly improved on the idea they had at the other place. And not a leprechaun in sight!

Maybe we caould do the same it is a good idea .

Have a thread with a phrase of the day that people contribute and then Breandán could put a box on the style sheet that displays it beside the Irish learner Forum along with the phonitics and english translation underneath ???

(its just a idea no idea if it is possible to do)

The only problem is, unless it's a stock phrase that we've vetted, it could raise a lot of contention re dialect and such. But it might be doable, if Breandán has the time.

Maybe we could just have a locked sticky thread somewhere (Rudaí Eile?) and delegate someone to keep it up to date? :bolt:

It could stay in the main section. And unlocked at first to see how it goes. If it is wrong in any way it can be corrected. Then any post discussing the correction can be deleted to keep the thread tidy.

I suppose we could have a locked thread and a link to a discussion thread like we have at the moment with the St. Patrick's Day Greetings thread, couldn't we?

Let's see how it goes first, we can always change it.

What type of phrases will they be?

If we go with "cá bhfuil an leithreas," we'll want to make sure they have "Fir" and "Mná" as well!

I think it would be cool to have phrases in different dialects.
Conamara one day, Donegal the next etc.

I agree with Breandán to have a thread with the phrase alone, and to discuss which phrase we will choose in this thread.
