That’s all well and good, as long as they’re practicing “social distancing” while they eat. :(
Could anybody explain me, please, why is 'dinnéar' pronounced [die-neir] and not [dee-neir]?
See AnLonDubhBeag’s explanation here — the “die” pronunciation does exist.
It is a Munster pronunciation.
question: if it had been, 'itheann ochtar dinnéar sa bhialann,' could that also mean that there is a total eight people in the restaurant, but not necessarily eating together?
