    Clearly, Irish is one of those mysteries that were never meant to be solved.

    Yes, but we sell it as "quaint' to tourists.

    Clearly Ireland hasn't benefitted from independence :eek:

    At least we could have taught you how to speak and spell

    *beats a hasty retreat* :D

    Given that English is my native language I'd say you succeeded on that one.

    Not that that justifies the 700 years of oppression though :p.

    Hurray for oppression! (not)


    Ireland's a lovely place, even if you can't pronounce the places you've visited :)

    My niece's name is Aoife which although short and sweet also throws a lot of people..

    Aoife - it's my name too :D. I think it's the 80% vowel quotient which confuses people...

    One I in my name.

    Aoife's 80% vowel quotient isn't so bad. There are Welsh words with what appear to be a 0% vowel quotient. My fave is the name of a (probably) horse fromThe Mabinogion: Drwgddyddwg.

    No I's in my name. Also, I think y can be a vowel.

    Everyone who says yes, you are wrong!
    There is no "I" in the words, "your name"
    :D

    Drwgddyddwg isn't that tough. In Welsh W is a vowel, and Y is treated much the same as it is in English. DD is a hard TH like this not thistle.

    "DROOG thi thoog" or Droog "THI thoog". Still not easy, but manageable.

    Nice try.

    The question asked was "Letter I in youre (sic) name?" not "Letter I in 'your name'?" Punctuation matters: there was a multi-million dollar lawsuit in Canada recently that hinged on a comma.
