I have a feeling this is a ghost sentence because I can't find any trace of it in the Incubator. I'll notify staff on Monday :) Please tell me if you see it again!

Two more appearances of this sentence happened on 2015-07-09 — once as a translation exercise and once as a “Mark a̲l̲l̲ correct translations” selection. The options in the second instance were:

  • Tá srón chomhfhiosach ag an eilifint.
  • Tá srón ramhar ag an eilifint.
  • Tá srón fhada ag an eilifint.

(I don’t know if that would help with your ghost hunting.)

Thanks for the report :) There was an update to the Incubator a few days ago which seems to have revived a few ghost sentences, but they are (thankfully!) easily deleted!
