Fa/ilte romhat Tery! Ta/ comhad againn anois. "IGPENPAL TYIG" is ainm
do/ agus bi/onn 40+ daoine ar an comhad seo a bhfuil Gaeilge acu.
Bi/onn gach sort de dhaoine ann, foghlaimeoir agus daoine a d'fholaigh
Gaeilge fado is fado o/ shin.
Seo dhuit eolas i dtaobh IGPENPAL TYIG!
This file contains the names of those GAELIC-L members seeking penpals
for correspondence in Irish Gaelic. Most are IG learners, but native
and fluent speakers are also included, who have expressed themselves
willing to help out, by corresponding with beginners. People seeking
penpals should register by sending private e-mail to Sea/n V. Kelley
at <[log in to unmask]>.
We would also like to include in this list individuals who are not on
the net, but would like to become Irish penpals via snail-mail. If you
have an acquaintance in this situation, please post their name and
address to Sea/n for inclusion in IGPENPAL TYIG; you then may download
the revised file, print it out and snail-mail to those you know who are
interested but are not yet on the net.
