Cúpla Focal

The question and answer being looked at in this Unit invites you to talk about how you get on with others in your family. You don’t have to tell the truth!

The prompt question is:

An réitíonn tú go maith le daoine eile sa teaghlach?

Do you get on well with others in your family?

An réitíonn tú go maith le daoine eile sa teaghlach?

An réitíonn tú go maith le daoine eile sa teaghlach?

 

Let’s take a positive spin on that one:

Réitím go maith le gach duine i mo theaghlach

I get on well with everyone in my family

Réitím go maith le gach duine i mo theaghlach

Réitím go maith le gach duine i mo theaghlach

      

Réitím go maith le – I get on with – réitím go maith le (le – with)

                                                

Réitím go maith le m’athair (with my father)

Réitím go maith le mo mháthair (with my mother)

Réitím go maith le mo fhear céile (with my husband)

Réitím go maith le mo bhean chéile (with my wife)

Réitím go maith le mo pháirtí (with my partner)

Réitím go maith le mo dhearthair (with my brother)

Réitím go maith le mo dheirfiúr (with my sister)

 

Réitím go maith le m’athair 

Réitím go maith le mo mháthair 

Réitím go maith le mo fhear céile 

Réitím go maith le mo bhean chéile

Réitím go maith le mo pháirtí 

Réitím go maith le mo dhearthair 

Réitím go maith le mo dheirfiúr 

 

You could add:

Déanann muid gach rud le chéile 

We do everything together

Déanann muid gach rud le chéile 

Déanann muid gach rud le chéile 

 

Tá muid an-chairdiúil agus cuidíonn muid lena céile

We are very friendly and help each other

Tá muid an-chairdiúil agus cuidíonn muid lena céile

Tá muid an-chairdiúil agus cuidíonn muid lena céile

Tá muid an-chairdiúil agus cuidíonn muid lena céile

 

Or listen to this exchange:

An réitíonn tú go maith le daoine eile sa teaghlach?

Sea, réitím go maith leo

Yes, I get on well with them, leo with them

Sea, réitím go maith leo

 

Ach bím ag argóint anois ‘s arís le mo dhearthair is sine 

But I argue sometimes with my oldest brother 

Ach bím ag argóint anois ‘s arís le mo dhearthair is sine

Ach bím ag argóint anois ‘s arís le mo dhearthair is sine

Ach bím ag argóint anois ‘s arís le mo dhearthair is sine

 

Or, if family relationships are a disaster, simply answer:

Ní réitím go maith le daoine eile sa teaghlach. Is fearr liom a bheith i m’aonar

I don’t get on well with other people in my family. I prefer to be on my own

Ní réitím go maith le daoine eile sa teaghlach. Is fearr liom a bheith i m’aonar

Ní réitím go maith le daoine eile sa teaghlach. Is fearr liom a bheith i m’aonar

Ní réitím go maith le daoine eile sa teaghlach. Is fearr liom a bheith i m’aonar

 

 

And to round off this this unit, let us build on our list of nouns to do with family:

athair – father

máthair – mother 

dearthair – brother 

deirfiúir - sister

fear céile – husband 

bean chéile – wife

páirtí - partner

uncail – uncle 

aintín – aunt 

seanathair – grandfather 

seanmháthair – grandmother 

col ceathrair– cousin 

 

athair 

máthair 

dearthair 

deirfiúir 

fear céile 

bean chéile 

páirtí 

uncail 

aintín 

seanathair 

seanmháthair 

col ceathrair 

 

The Irish language is rich in proverbs and there is one in particular that a lot of learners and fluent speakers for that matter, really like.  And that is -

Ar scáth a chéile a mhaireann na daoine

We live in each other’s shadow (indicating our mutual responsibility for and dependence on all other people, related  to us or not)

Ar scáth a chéile a mhaireann na daoine

Ar scáth a chéile a mhaireann na daoine

Ar scáth a chéile a mhaireann na daoine

 

And on that positive note, go dtí an chéad Aonad eile, slán go fóill

A unique look inside the underground tunnel at Heather Park in Newry, formerly known as Gallows Hill. The tunnel dates from the 18th century and very little is know of it's history or even where it leads. *At present the tunnel is NOT open to the public although it would be good to see it available ...
