Thanks to Henno and Snifferdog for keeping the posts going :-)
I must apoligise for not checking in sooner.
I was born and raised in Ireland and lived there until 1994 then I moved to the US and now Canada.
I learned ( and forgot) the Irish language there in school.
When i go home though a lot of phrases are still used and it starts to come back.
My name in Irish is Deaglan O Seasnain.. There are a couple of Fadas in there too but this keyboard doesnt have any !!!
