Cúpla Focal

This week’s short lesson addresses the useful conversational opener

Cad é a rinne tú i ndiaidh am tae inné?

What did you do after tea yesterday? 

Cad é a rinne tú i ndiaidh am tae inné?

 

This question gives you lots of scope to use the past tense and to practise some time and sequencing connectives (firstly, secondly, then, after that, next, later…)

 

You will communicate best if what you say reflects what you actually did and if you attend a class your teacher can help you formulate an answer.   

 

Some suggested answers follow.

 

Sampla 1

 

Cad é a rinne tú i ndiaidh am tae inné?

 

I ndiaidh am tae inné, lig mé mo scíth

After tea yesterday I rested myself

I ndiaidh am tae inné, lig mé mo scíth

 

And then to add some detail and verbs of course

Chuir mé mo chuid slipéir orm; thug mé cupán tae chuig an seomra suí agus d’amharc mé ar Eggheads 

D’fhreagair mé cuid mhaith ceisteanna

 

Chuir mé mo chuid slipéir orm - I put on my slippers 

Thug mé cupán tae chuig an seomra suí – I took a cup to tea to the sitting room

Agus d’amharc mé ar Eggheads – and I watched Eggheads

D’fhreagair mé cuid mhaith ceisteanna – I answered a good few questions

 

Let’s hear it again:

 

Cad é a rinne tú i ndiaidh am tae inné?

 

I ndiaidh am tae inné, lig mé mo scíth

Chuir mé mo chuid slipéir orm; thug mé cupán tae chuig an seomra suí agus d’amharc mé ar Eggheads 

D’fhreagair mé cuid mhaith ceisteanna

 

Sampla 2

 

You may have been more pro-active of course

 

Ar an chéad dul síos, ghlan mé an tábla agus nigh mé na soithí

Firstly, I cleared the table and I washed the dishes

Ar an chéad dul síos, ghlan mé an tábla agus nigh mé na soithí

 

Bhí na páistí ag déanamh obair baile agus chuidigh mé leo

The children were doing homework and I helped them

Bhí na páistí ag déanamh obair baile agus chuidigh mé leo

 

Ansin, chuaigh mé amach ag siúl le mo mhadadh

Then I went out walking with my dog

Ansin, chuaigh mé amach ag siúl le mo mhadadh

 

Tháinig mé abhaile scriosta ach sásta

I came home very tired but satisfied

 

And straight through this time

 

Cad é a rinne tú i ndiaidh am tae inné?

 

Ar an chéad dul síos, ghlan mé an tábla agus nigh mé na soithí

Bhí na páistí ag déanamh obair baile agus chuidigh mé leo

Ansin, chuaigh mé amach ag siúl le mo mhadadh

Tháinig mé abhaile scriosta ach sásta

 

Agus arís

 

Cad é a rinne tú i ndiaidh am tae inné?

 

Ar an chéad dul síos, ghlan mé an tábla agus nigh mé na soithí

Bhí na páistí ag déanamh obair baile agus chuidigh mé leo

Ansin, chuaigh mé amach ag siúl le mo mhadadh

Tháinig mé abhaile scriosta ach sásta

 

 

Samplaí eile/Other sample answers 

 

Ghlac mé cithfholcadh. D’athraigh mé mo chuid éadaí. Agus d’amharc mé ar an nuacht

 

I took a shower. I changed my clothes. And I watched the news

 

Ghlac mé cithfholcadh. D’athraigh mé mo chuid éadaí. Agus d’amharc mé ar an nuacht

 

Ghlac mé cithfholcadh. D’athraigh mé mo chuid éadaí. Agus d’amharc mé ar an nuacht

 

And to get in some sequencing words, try this

 

Cad é a rinne tú i ndiaidh am tae inné?

 

Ar dtús, mhúch mé mo ghuthán. Ansin, bhain mé díom mo bhróga. Shuigh mé síos ar an tolg. Ar ball, thit mé i mo chodladh.  Dhúisigh mé ar a hocht a chlog!

 

At first, I turned off my phone. Then I took off my shoes. I sat down on the couch. Soon, I fell asleep. I woke up at eight o’clock!

 

Ar dtús, mhúch mé mo ghuthán. Ansin, bhain mé díom mo bhróga. Shuigh mé síos ar an tolg. Ar ball, thit mé i mo chodladh.  Dhúisigh mé ar a hocht a chlog!

And finally, if you just want a brief one-liner, try

 

Cad é a rinne tú i ndiaidh am tae inné?

Ní dhearna mé faic

I did nothing

Ní dhearna mé faic

 

Or

 

Cad é a rinne tú i ndiaidh am tae inné?

Rinne mé ceacht Gaeilge ar-líne – thaitin sé liom

I did an Irish lesson online – I enjoyed it

Rinne mé ceacht Gaeilge ar-líne – thaitin sé liom

Go dtí ceacht na seachtaine seo chugainn, slán go fóill.
