Gaeilge Ireland

Scott Waters gently reminds me that Irish is not the only Celtic language still being used.

Of course not, it’s just the one I’m most interested in. Scott points to this site dedicated to Cornish, or Kernewek.

The language received some good publicity some time back on the cartoon “The Simpsons” when Lisa Simpson shouted ‘rydhsys rag Kernow lemmyn’ (Freedom for Cornwall now). There is a page dedicated to this episode on the Warlinenn site.

So Scott, I’ll learn Irish, you learn Kernewek, and we’ll meet over a few and determine between us if there is mutual intelligibility
