Stephen Fry & Irish

Dia daoibh! Stephen Fry’s is currently hosting a 5 part series looking into languages of the world. It airs every Sunday at 9pm on BBC2. Last night was episode 2 and it featured Irish. It was a quite interesting episode looking into its uses, it’s descriptive power and it use among children in the modern day Ireland. He even gets a ‘bit part’ in the famous Irish soap drama Ros na Rún!
