DIA DAOIBH gach duine, another season has come and gone and a big holiday is coming up, which means it's time for another wee Irish lesson to improve your cúpla focail.
In October, we taught you 16 spooky Halloween words in Irish and how to pronounce them (check it out here!) and now it's time to do the same for Christmas!
Whether you'll spend the holiday listening to Stiofán ag Simí (Shakin' Stevens) or Síscéal de Nua-Eabhrac (Fairytale of New York) , spend Christmas Eve in the teach tábhairne (pub) with friends or sa bhaile (at home) with family, we can all come together under our love of the teanga.
So without further ado...
