  1. Большое спасибо! Ожидаются ли какие-то ещё обновления в ближайшее время? Будет ли кто-либо по вашей просьбе озвучивать Шьядну (Seadna)?

    • There are ten more chapters of audio to upload – but I haven’t edited them yet. As soon as I do, they will be uploaded, but we have only done half of Matthew’s Gospel, 14 chapters in all. I am not doing Séadna, as I was told someone else is coming to the Gaeltacht soon to do a recording of Séadna.

    • well, most of the audio files are up now (although I haven’t edited all the verb tables to link to them), but I will put ID3 tags on the rest, and gradually redo the others over the next week or so. Good idea, Aonghus.

  2. Thank you so much for these great audio clips! Could you upload the rest of St. Matthew? I would be extremely grateful.

    Also, do you know if there has ever been any recordings done of the entire Bible (or at least the whole New Testament) in any dialect of Irish and where I might get a hold of a copy?

    • I’m afraid that’s all I got. I would like to get the whole of the New Testament done, but it is extremely difficult to find native speakers who are used to reading Irish fluently. I don’t think the whole Bible has ever been recorded, and the Irish government’s decision to make an artificial standard for Irish makes it harder, as the made-up standard conflicts with all the dialects, making it unnatural to read…

  3. Nílid siad go léir ollamh fós – b’éigean dom a lán díobh a chuir in eagar le hAudacity ar dtúis… Ach nuair a bheid siad ann, cuirfead chút iad.
