    It's a matter of perspective really... for most people on the boards, I suppose it would be considering that most people can't speak it.

    I think you worded that wrong Sam, even if an Irish person doesn't speak Irish it doesn't make it a foreign language to them, it's still our own language..

    PS. I know you were speaking in general but an Irish person could be sensitive about your wording

    Yes, I agree. The point I am really trying to make is that most people in Ireland don't actully speak Irish, so from their own perspectives, it would seem to be so.

    There you go again, it might as well be so but it still wouldn't seem so
