Everyday Irish: ‘Cúpla Focal’ will build the boys confidence and over time they will have a store of Irish that they can draw on right through to secondary school and beyond. This fortnight’s phrases are:

Fág spás don mhúinteoir – Leave room for the teacher

Ná bígí ag ithe at an mbealach amach – do not eat on the way out 

Rachaimid amach go dtí and clós anois – we will go to the yard now


We would encourage you to try find ways to use these simple phrases at home
