Scottish Gaelic speakers?

Do we have any Scottish Gaelic speakers on the forums?

No speak...but I know a few words. Sit down, the rosary, and pug me hon. Used to take classes when I was little along with step dancing. Used to go to Feises(fieses) too. Both my parents are from Ireland.

So you're first generation American.
My understanding is there are distinct dialect differences between the Scots and the Irish Gaelic. Even the Welsh Gaelic are different in many of the words, despite a common origin for all three.

I remember it was a hard/confusing language to lear. We memorized some songs and poems way back. It's been 30 years so I don't remember too much. One poem was Misa Era and the other was Misa Raftery. We used to sing songs too. I went to Ireland for two full summers when I was 8 and 10 and Marched in the St. Patrick's Day parade twice in NYC. I used to play Gaelic footbal til I was 18. Used to go to the Scottish games here too. I run into a couple of Irish guys once in a while who ride. I can detect the brogues from a mile away.

I know what you mean about Gaelic! I've twisted my tongue a few times.
Always thought that Star Trek used Gaelic as the basis for Klingon.

Saint Mary's Church in the hollow of white hazel near a rapid whirlpool and the Church of Saint Tysilio near the red cave.
