    By a landslide too. Coincidentally I have just started trying to learn the Irish language the other day. Duolingo is a pretty sweet app. Now, if you don't mind... I'm off to Itheann bia agus olaimid beoir. (I don't know how to say "i'm off to" in Irish yet).

    The rights of a minority should not be decided by a majority, but I'm glad this time it worked out.

    It was more undoing a decision that was made a long time ago.

    Jaysus I get invited to enough weddings already.

    @Krynn72 I hope you're aware that there are very few areas in Ireland were people actually speak Irish. If you finish off that course you'll have a better grasp of the language than 90% of Irish people.

    Yes, I know. I'm not doing it for any practical purposes.
