Hey Duo! Milk is bad for cats!

Since when? If it's low fat milk bought in a store it may be hard for them to digest it, but natural/organic milk isn't bad for cats, if you don't feed them only that of course

Cats are actually lactose intolerant after a certain age so if you keep giving milk you have to get a special cat milk with no lactose and it also has a very important vitamin

bainne is pronounced bagne ? Like "gn" in french or "nh" in portuguese ?

I learned Munster Irish, and that's how we said it at school, yes. I believe Duolingo uses Connaught/Connemara/Western dialect, and that's what she says on the recording. Northern/Donegal Irish might be different though. It was the dialect I found hardest at school.
