Topic Notes

We've spent quite a bit of time on our favorite tenses ...

Looking forward to the rest of spring and summer, two topics that have been requested:

Last Time (April 17) {Back to Top}(back to top)


Ní leithne an t-aer ná an timpiste.. The air is not wider than the accident, that is, accidents can always happen, anywhere.


We spent the whole class time in conversation, people asked questions, and I hope you all recognize what an excellent accomplishment that is! Travel, music and theatre, work and weddings, Easter... conversation fueled by another excellent treat from Kerry the Baker.


We didn't get to the handout, so we'll carry that homework over for next time, with a little extra.


For April 24

Previous Class (April 10) {Back to Top}(back to top)


Níl siad le fáil dubh bán ná riabhach. More an expression than a proverb, "It's not to be had in any way, shape or form" (black, white or striped)

We had quite a discussion about that word riabhach, noting that we are in the laethanta na riabaí now (dismal late March early April)


This took most of the evening, as we explored Johana's bombshell that she is moving to California around June 1. The discussion was helped by servings of Kerry's excellent Bakewell Tart.

Saint Patrick and Oisïn

Fortunately, it didn't take long to run through the tale about St. Patrick converting Oisín to Christianity, with a bit of a mishap. Only a couple of trouble spots.
