I think he is attempting to say that he is here to make friends but it did not happen. He will be back again when his language has improved. Sincerely hope I'm not misquoting Pauric P. If I am my apologies but fair play to him for having a go.

Is ait an sceal e ach, ta me tinn, ta MS agam anois le 40 blian annuas agus ta mo memory caillte so tosnaigh me ag foghlaim o thuas [Bearla Matts agus anois Gailge]. Ironically Oliver I went to Colaiste Mhuire ith Cearnog Pharnell; so all my schooling was done as Gailge, 3 years in U. C. D. went on to finish my accountancy in Stokes Kennedy Crowley back in the mid 70's all gone overnight but if my late father taught me anything it was that life gos on. As you can I'm a Dub and pro-had of it Slan Tamaill

A Phadraig P. Go raibh maith agat as do freagra. Ta brón orm go bhfuil tinneas ort. Is fear cróga tusa. Pauric thanks for your answer and so sad to read the contents. I have not learnt enough gaeilge to finsh my comment and what I have written may not be correct usage but what the heck!! I hope you are well at the moment. Do you use social media e.g.Facebook or Whats app. etc. Viber for messaging? This site may not be the best place for conversation or exchange of personal details. I'm not sure of the limitations or policy of Duol in this regard. Slán go fóill agus adh mór ort.

A Phadraig, tá mé go maith, conas atá tú féin?. Yes I am Irish and learning our native language at 71 y.o. For the sake of my grandchildren and I'm so sorry I did not listen at school all those years ago but it was very different then. I think it is the Sine fada you are enquiring about- the little line (accent) over the vowels. If so, press ALT GR then type letter and it should appear. I use a laptop. If on phone long hold letter required and a little chart appears then move to required accent. Hope this is of help to you. Go n- éirigh an bothar leat. May the road rise to meet you-good luck- in other words. Slán go fóill.
