Yu Ming Is Ainm Dom

Just ran across this charming Irish short. A young Chinese man, Yu Ming, is disillusioned with his life. He learns Gaeilge and comes to Ireland, but figures his Irish must be pretty bad since no one can understand a word he says. Don't worry. It has a happy ending. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JqYtG9BNhfM

Man, it is a such a shame that so many irishmen abandon the language.

Really nice, GRMA! When I say I'm studying Irish the main reply I get is "why" so yeah :)

I love this film! I''ve seen it so many times! My all time favourite. I always try to show it to as many people as possible, though most of my friends don't get how charming and brilliant it is :(

One of many great Irish shorts. It's much lighter than "An Cáca Milis".
