I listen to Raidio na Gaeltachta on my internet radio. I like listening to traditional music.
On weekends, it seems to be sports - play by play of some game or other. I can't get anything out of it because I don't understand very much Irish. Also I'm not a sports fan of any type.
I can't make much sense of the online schedule. On the RnaG wikipedia page, it says that between 2100 and 0100, they play music with English lyrics to appeal to younger people.
So can anyone suggest a time of day that I can listen to traditional music?
Hello! Is there a word that specifically means/refers to making deals and/or bargains with fairies? Someone mentioned this term might exist, but I've been searching high and low for confirmation one way or the other to no avail.
I am assuming "ev-net" but I would appreciate any input as I am nowhere near being a native Gaeilge speaker.
What are the words for different colours of cats? Eg. the equivalent Irish terms for tortoiseshell, calico, marmalade, tuxedo cat, and any other terms.
Just recently I fell in love with the traditional song Siúil A Rúin. I'm singing in a group and we mainly perform a'cappella songs, sea shanties and folk songs so when I introduced this song to my fellow members we immediately decided to add it to our repertoire. I am fairly new to Gaelic and I adore the sound of it, but sadly, I can neither speak it nor pronounce correctly. I would be really grateful if someone could help me with the chorus:
Siúil, siúil, siúil a rúin
Siúil go socair agus siúil go ciúin
Siúil go doras agus éalaigh liom
Is go dté tú mo mhúirnín slán
I'm not sure if the spelling is correct as I found the lyrics online, so I'm sorry about that. Thank you in advance!
