Of course Irish is a language! Don't you guys have Irish pubs in the states (I was led to believe there was more than one knocking around). If there are they must have a few Irish sayings scrawled somewhere.
"Cead mile Failte", "Pog ma thoin" and all that!
How isn't it common knowledge? We may be a small island but we are distinct from the UK and mainland Europe. Own language, customs, national dress, art, music even our own sports!
Youtube an "All Ireland Hurling Final", maybe from the Irish speaking channel TG4, you'll know all about the Irish then!
And for future refence I *really* wouldn't infer that Ireland was in anyway part of the UK. I'm not a militant about these things but some Irish people get quite upset.
maybe it wouldn't be a good idea to get him on, he might explode...
