It's like being in the Serengeti here, with all these elephants! Jaysus, there's another one.

Are there enough i's in that word? We'd better add another one to the plural just to make sure.

Iirritatingly, given that the Irish word for elephant is so similar to the English word it's one of the easier animals to remember. I wish they would over use a harder word :/

There are some brilliant Irish animal names that are very memorable. Madra uisce ("water dog") - otter ; Bóín dé ("God's little cow") - ladybird/ladybug; Smugairle róin ("Seal snot") - jellyfish :)

I had right before this one "Eilifintí?" So it sounds like she's saying "Are those elephants? Yep! It's elephants!"

When picking the correct one, there's always two correct answers and either works

I am having the worst time remembering which "I"'s get fadas and which ones don't- they are all still sounding alike to me.

Sp1jk3z, the symbols dont look like a cuss word to you probably. But surprisingly, it actually is to other people so you might not want to share that around people who dont cuss. Thank you

I apologize, but in my defense: there are children everywhere and I censored it with 'e' at least. I didn't think it through at the time though, so I apologize and will delete the comment.
