Finished the Irish Tree

It took 180 straight days with lots and lots of repetitions, but I finally finished the Irish Tree. Now to go back and work on all those lessons that need work. Which is all of them.
Keep at it folks, if I can do it, anyone can.

I can't wait to get back to Donegal and have a nice quiet chat with m'uncail.

And thanks to Duolingo; I never dreamed I'd be able to learn as much Irish as I have. Now, the serious learning starts.

Slan abhaile!

Comhghairdeas leat, a Sheáin! That's a great accomplishment. For practicing with Irish, I've enjoyed the translated lyrics on ancroiait. Here's an example, Amhrán na Farraige (Song of the Sea):

And now they have introduced crowns! I had finished the course on my PC and also finished it under another user name on my phone and am now starting the crowns trail. I want to be able to speak it better as I don't use mic on PC, so have got some good video lessons using the Ulster dialect. Slan
