There are three sets of numbers in Gaelic, just to keep life interesting, plus an old 'new way' they've dug up to make mathematics 'easier' for children in Gaelic Medium Education. The first set of numbers is the "basic" set of numbers, the one you use for counting things. The second set is used if you're simply counting or giving a phone number, and the third for counting people which is the same in both systems. Because we do not have the same space restrictions as books have, we're going to give you both systems up to a hundred. The traditional shows first, the new old system shows further down, and then come plenty of examples above There are two examples for each number, one for masculine and one for feminine nouns.
Traditional Irish Blessings and Other Gaelic Sayings
There are two branches to the Celtic languages group. Although each language is rich in history and full of wonderful expressions, here we are going to narrow it down to expressions in Irish Gaelic. Learn various gaelic sayings and some traditional Irish blessings. In the Irish Gaelic cultures, these expressions are akin to giving someone a good blessing and occur as often as the curses in conversational dialects around the island and beyond.
I know of no Irish person who uses it and it sounds as strange to Irish people as it does to most other people. In fact, I am not sure where that phrase originated though I have heard it rumoured that it may be from New Zealand but I wouldn't bet on it. I give a non-linguistic pronunciation guide to the expression, a fairly literal translation and an equivalent English expression. It is important to know that some Gaelic expressions vary from one dialect to another. I will go into these differences in more detail elsewhere.
