Notes Before You Take an Irish Class !


Hello Fada!
notes for the curious about the Irish Language

Counting; Greetings; Mac and O;
Sing the Anthem; Q & A ; Basic Words

Want a relaxed, fun way to learn about Irish Language ? Listen to one of our free Hedge School sessions and you’ll be hooked! No language experience required. Year 1 session leader, Renata, answers my questions after her Hedge School class is dismissed, and we are all the better for it. 

'Hello Fada' is not a song you learn at camp (like Hello Mudda, Hello Fadda'). The 'Fada' is the ancient accent mark that shows up as an apostrophe in so many Irish 'O' names like O'Brien, etc.. Click here for more about Renata and Language.

...and a big thank you to all of our members! -Mike O'L

P.S. See my first album below, we sing many old style songs in Irish too !
