Irish Gaelic vs. Scottish Gaelic

Hello everyone! Before we start, I would like to announce that over the weekends I won't be on Duolingo because I'm always busy on weekends. Alright, the next challenge is Irish vs. Scottish!!!

In case you are unfamiliar with this challenge here is the discussion were we talked about it: https://www.duolingo.com/comment/25125242

So, this is how it works. We are going to put each language to challenge each other in 3 categories. 1. How it sounds (spoken) 2. How is sings (sung) 3. How it looks (written)

Now, what you have to do is vote! Choose which is the winner in this round. Also, we would like you to write in great detail why you chose the language you voted for. Let's start!

Irish -

  1. Spoken: https://youtu.be/RNfnIkzh_6o
  2. Sung: https://youtu.be/XRNou-7gI4o
  3. Written: Is fadhb choitianta i measc daoine óga í piarbhrú

Scottish -

  1. Spoken: https://youtu.be/7rcOrg6k630
  2. Sung: https://youtu.be/YCzUSJo5zqI
  3. Written: Cha bhòrd bòrd gun aran ach 's bòrd aran leis fhèin

This one's hard because they both sound and look similar but I choose:


Mainly because I love the Irish accent but that doesn't mean I dis Scottish. They both sound awesome!


Definitely, Irish i love the accent it so good, HBU? how was you weekend?


My weekend was great, my band was performing on the Santa Monica pier as usual. How was yours?

"The" Irish accent? Which one?

    I'll vote for Scottish, I love the Scottish culture!


    BOTH SEEM HARD. But, I would choose Irish, because the language is somehow easier than Scottish.


    What's written in the two languages in the OP?


    Would you post a news cast vid for Scottish too? The current Scottish and Irish Gaelic videos are very uneven in terms of presentation. The current Scottish video you've got up seems a bit messy.

    Edit: Here is a news cast in Scottish Gaelic, but, it doesn't really start any talking until about 53 seconds in.


    Thank you Usagiboy7 I was going to ask you to send me one but I see you updated your comment so I'll put your video right now!
