Valiente: brantgoose: So don't bad mouth the Gaelic or the Gaelic Mouth will chew you up and spit out your bones to spell the Gaelic word for something you should have done last Thursday but won't get around to doing until after the next Christmas but one.I wouldn't think of it. I've travelled extensively in rural Ireland...it builds a proper thrist...and even outside of the Gaeltacht, there's plenty of evidence that Irish grammar has and continues to affect the way the Irish speak English. One of my favourite examples is what I call the "Irish conditional", which is a sort of call and response to an amiable proposition:"So, Seamus, would you be wanting to go for a glass?""Sure, that I would. You paying?""I would, if you would be crossing the road to the ATM"."I would, sure".I've heard variations on this all over the Republic.
