There is a famous saying in Irish, “Tír gan teanga, tír gan anam.” A country without a language is a country without a soul.
The Irish language is a huge part of what unites people of the Wild West together as a nation. It connects us with our ancestors and brings the feeling of family to life. We recognise the importance of this here at Wild West Irish Tours and want to help you connect with your roots!
We have had our Social Media Manager Rachael, a native Irish speaker, recite quaint little Irish phrases weekly on all our media platforms. We can assure you by watching these quick videos that you will get a feel of how comforting the Irish language sounds, it will transport you to the Wild West!
You can expect to hear amazing phrases that are said by locals all around Ireland. Such as “’Níl aon tinteán mar do thinteán féin’ which means ‘There’s no place like home’. We hope that you will tune in each week and pick up a few words of Gaeilge. And when you join us on a tour, the locals will love that you have helped spread the Irish word throughout the world. Come along with us on this journey of keeping the language alive!
As we say in Irish, “Is fearr Gaeilge briste, ná Béarla clíste.” It is better to have broken Irish than clever English!
