Axis Ballymun released a fantastic love-letter to the Irish Langauge this week, written and performed by Roxanna Nic Liam. Siúcra elegantly addresses the tension many Irish people experience when it comes to Gaeilge. The excellent video mixes Irish & English throughout and covers the beauty of Gaeilge, the excuses and tropes used by those hesitant in using the language, and the permission to use and learn Irish without taking on the burden of upholding its vast traditions.
Is í ár dteanga féin í, it is our language, even if we do get stuck in a gramadach hole go minic.
