Online Irish Chatroom-Discord
I recently saw this post in the Esperanto section of Duolingo: https://www.duolingo.com/comment/11843455
Which was detailing an online chatroom called Discord (for Esperanto), allowing people to talk in the language and thus practice it while still communicating with friends.
I was thinking we could do something like this for Irish! ^^ I tried to start an Irish immersion forums some time ago, but I think the slow response time to forums turns people off, and then they forget about it. These chatrooms are similar to Skype or other such communication applications, and use voice chat as well as text. So you can get audio practice (if you so choose, it is not required) as well as phonetic practice.
Attempt to only use Irish in the chatroom, if we use other languages as well it somewhat defeats the purpose.
Also if anyone has made this before and is more actively used let me know, I don't want to divide people between the two.

Discord (from what I've read, not utilized as of yet) has mobile capabilities similar to Skype, so you can stay in the group while you're away from home or a computer.
EDIT: The link apparently expires after 24 hours. If it says expired just let me know and I'll send you a new one. I'm going to try to figure out a way to get a permanent link if possible. EDIT2: The link no longer expires.
