Seo físeán an-shuimiúil faoi Ghaeltacht Mhionlaigh a bhí suite ar imeall Chathair na Gaillimhe. Is mór an trua é go bhfuil an canúint seo ag dul in éag. Bhí an Ghaeilge seo ar nós an Ghaeilge a bhí i lár Chonnachta.

This is a very interesting video about Menlo Gaeltacht that was on the outskirts of Galway city. It's a huge shame that this particular dialect is dying out.

Interesting video, thanks for sharing.

I was reading what you wrote in the first sentence and was pretty pleased with myself for being able to understand nearly all of it without using a translator :P which for me is a pretty big accomplishment :D

It is of no relevance to the Irish spoken in Menlo, but a recent article in the Irish Times mentioned that the Menlo Park area of modern day Silicon Valley was so named in 1854 by two Galway men who had some success in the San Francisco gold-rush.
