Non-native speakers
I want to keep my reading of Irish by non-Gaeltacht natives to a minimum, but would like to read these. Myles na gCopaleen, despite being a “neo-native” raised in Irish in Strabane, Co. Tyrone, is classed as a non-native speaker here–as I don’t recognize neo-native status as being a genuine equivalent of being a Gaeltacht native. Similarly, those who learned Irish from children in the neighbourhood are classed here as non-native speakers.

  1. Как я понимаю, все эти авторские работы в итоге будут выложены на вашем сайте?

  2. An-obair déanta agat a dhuine !

    Mar is tuigthe dom, foillseófar na hoibre bunúsacha so go léir ar do shuíomh nó cuirfear ar fáil iad ar ball — an bhfuil an ceart agam ?

    • well, I cannot change the fact that the Irish government has made a conscious decision to delete all pre-CO literature from the Irish literary canon, so no.
