Is míse Gearóid.
Is Éireannach mé ach táim i mo chonaí thar lear le 24 bliain anios. Níl ach Gaeilge na Scoile agamsa ach nuair a tháinig mé go dtí
Lucsamburg bhí saghas náire orm mar bíonn na daoine anseo in ann 3 nó 4 teangacha a lábhairt agus ní raibh mé líofa i mo theanga féin.
Mar sin, thósaigh mé ag foghlaim arís. Ach ní 'polyglot' é mise agus is foghlaimeoir go deo mé!


My name is Gerard.
I am Irish but am living overseas for 24 years now. I only have 'school Irish' but when I arrived here in Luxembourg I was really embarrassed to find people here speaking 3 or 4 languages and I could not speak my own native language fluently!
So I started learning it again. But, I don't learn languages easily. I will be an eternal 'Learner', when it comes to Irish.


Le gach dea-ghuí,
Gearóid
Lucsamburg

Hello! My name is Deanna and I've just joined today. I have been researching my genealogy for a couple of years now and FINALLY followed our family back to Ireland. Still in the process of a lot of research, but my sister and I are planning a trip to Ireland in 2014, after we know where our family lived. I would love to be able to go back and at least speak a few words of Irish, but I admit, I've never tried to learn at all. So I thought I would hang around here for a while, learn some things and hopefully get some tips and/or ideas on where to study a little more in depth. Glad to be here!

Deanna

Hi! My name is Kaleigh. I am part Irish and Scottish, and if you saw me, you wouldn't doubt it. I have bright red hair, green eyes and I'm covered in freckles. I also do Irish Step Dancing. I only know a few words in Gaelic, and would love to learn more. :]
