->yardstick by which we decide the correctness of some bit of Gaelic?
Gabh mo leithsce/al o/ an Bearla ach ni/l go leor Gaelige agam. Nobody
was saying that Connemara Gaelic is wrong - far from it! Just that
O'Siadhail is not suitable for beginners because it is dry, grammatical
in approach, no bloody use if you actually want to speak Irish and,
above all, BORING.
