That’s no reason not to use your Irish. In fact it might be a way of meeting up with like minded fellow country men and women in far flung places. Join the Bród Club and tell us where you are in the world and we’ll try and put you in touch with other Bród Club members, wherever you are.

And there is something you could do for us right now. We want to hear and see Irish used everywhere. Make a video of you and your friends using Irish in your new country. Go one step further and help us make a viral – sing Oró Sé Do Bheatha ‘Bhaile against a backdrop that shows us where you are in the world – eg – Red Square; The top of the Empire State Building; The London Eye; The Eiffel Tower; in front of Sydney Opera House; outside the Taj Mahal …wherever you are.

This Week’s Task

Answer your mobile phone all this week with an Irish greeting such as Hi, conas atá tu? and say goodbye with Slán go fóill. And / or change your voicemail so it is bi-lingual.
