hehe, suppose the jig is up, I'm from the U.S. I do like geography though.
I never thought you were from here I'm going to be very picky and annoying here but it really should be Éire go brách which was often seen written on the flags of the United Irishmen. The anglicised form is Erin go bragh but most Irish phrases that are anglicised lose their meaning like Dun nanGall means the fort of the foreigners so they anglicise it to donegal and it loses its meaning which is a shame really.

I'm going to be useless when I arrive in Dublin as I never have a clue how to pronouce Irish words/names/place names

I couldn't even cope with Howth. For years I thought it rhymned with Mouth until a man who worked on the DART told me it was pronounced Hoath.

And don't even get me started on Dun Laoghaire It took lots of 'dun lay-ogg-hairy' type pronunciation before I finally clicked that it was Dun Leary

I'm sure I'll get there eventually. I the Irish language. I'd like to try to learn some whilst I'm over there

If only someone would offer me a thousand dollars to recite the states from memory. Hell, it could still happen.
Yes, that's the song! Do they even still sing that anymore? It was a good way for kids to learn. They should still use it.

1000 dollars would be nice. Like I said about the game show, I've always wished I could put this to use somewhere it would matter

Hehe, yeah I know. I thought if I put the original form, only Irish people would know what it meant, and everyone else wondering what I'm on about. AND, this other site I go to, only allows English in profiles, so just to be safe, I went with the 'Anglicised' version, apologies to the real Irish folk here.

I got a book, "Teach yourself Irish", it's pretty cool, but yeah, I have to photocopy the pronunciation pages, so I can go to the next chapters. I know a little Spanish, so I'm used to some things, verbs and noun placements.

You familiar with St. Patrick's Battalion, "Mexico's Fighting Irish" ? I learned about them in one of my Spanish studies classes, had no idea, and I'm Mexican-American "double"-->

Not really, a bit, I think the San Patricios (I think ) were founded by some bloke from Galway (Galway ) and they fought in the us/mexican war around the 1840's (1847 - 49 or something), I think they left the US army because they were treated realy badly and didn't want to fight against Mexico so joined their forces. I don't really know anything about St. Patrick's Battalion...obviously

Kirkcudbrightshire (pronounced Kir-co-bee- shire, I believe) is where my ancestors orginated from. Yep, my family packed up their tailor making business, all the kids, and the rest of the familys remains from the cemetery and migrated to either Sussex St, Sydney or the Necropolis (as appropriate)
