Dia Dhuit. My name is Liam O’Maonlai and I want to welcome you to the Irish Independent and Sunday Independent’s Irish language CD course. There are no books required for this course. Simply sit back and prepare to learn, or relearn, a range of Irish-language expressions that you can then use in your everyday life.

pleasure to meet you. I’m from Dublin. Are you from Kerry. Kerry is a beautiful place.

Tá sé deas bualadh leat. Is as Baile átha Cliath dom. An as Ciarrai duit? Tá Ciarraí go hálainn.

lasting approximately ten minute each. I will speak the phrase in English and then I’ll say the same thing in Irish. After that, there’ll be a pause for you to practice saying the words in Irish

Well, nice to meet you. Bhuel, deas bualadh leat

yourself. I will then go on to the next phrase.

Goodbye.

So let’s begin… Lesson One: Introducing yourself

Slán

There are a number of ways of greeting someone in Irish.

See you. Feicfidh mé thú

When someone says “Dia dhuit”, you reply, “Dia is muire dhuit.” Now, you try it.

Bye for now. Slán go fóill

You can also say any of the following. Listen and repeat.

Now try putting two of the phrases together to close off an en- counter:

Hello

<note Irish only, followed by a pause>

Dia dhuit

Please let me introduce myself Lig dom mé féin a chur in aithne

My name is Peadar Peadar is ainm dom

Hi, my name is Seán Hi, Seán is ainm dom

It’s a pleasure to meet you. Tá sé deas bualadh leat

How are you? Conas tá tú?

I’m fine – and you? Tá mé go breá – agus tú féin?

Well, nice to meet you. Goodbye. Bhuel, deas bualadh leat, slán

Now trying to put a couple of sentences together yourself. Try saying:

“Hello, I’m Peadar from Donegal. I’m pleased to meet you.”

<Note pause for student to attempt the phrases.>

OK, Hopefully you said something like:

<Note Repeat the phrase in Irish this time.>

“Is mise Peadar ó Dhún na nGall. Tá sé deas bualadh leat.” And that brings us to the end of our first lesson. You might want to review it until you become familiar with the contents.

Lesson Two: Asking for Help

Good, thank you. Go maith, go raibh maith agat

In this lesson we will look at getting information from others.

I’m from Dublin. Is as Baile Átha Cliath domsa

There are a number of ways to approach people. Listen and repeat.

I’m from Donegal. Is as Dún na nGall dom.

Excuse me Gabh mo leithscéal

You’re from Kerry? Whereabouts? Is as Ciarraí duit? Cén áit?

Hi. Can you help me? Hi. An féidir leat cabhrú liom?

Where is?

Kerry is a beautiful place. Tá Ciarraí go hálainn.

Cá bhfuil…?

Please. Le do thoil

Thank you. Go raibh maith agat

Hi. Can you help me? I am looking for the beach. Is it the next left after the Post Office? Oh. The first right on the Main Street. Thank you.

I’m looking for the Post Office Táim ag lorg Oifig an Phoist

<note pause for student attempt.>

Now, we will put those phrases into complete sentences. Lis- ten and repeat.

Ok. It goes like this:

Excuse me. Hi! Can you help me please? Where is the post office? Thank you.

Hi. An féidir leat cabhrú liom? Táim ag lorg na trá. An bhfuil sí ar chlé tar éis Oifig an Phoist? Oh, an chéad chasadh ar dheis ar an bPríomhshráid. Go raibh maith agat.
