Darach Ó Séaghdha is the lad behind the brilliant The Irish For Twitter account and the fantastic Motherfoclóir book and podcast. He’s on an one man mission to show us all what we’re missing by blanking the Gaeilge and he’s doing so in some style.

Tá idir gliondar agus grá múscailte ag Darach sa Ghaeilge le cúpla bliain anuas ar na meáin shóisialta. D'eascair leabhar agus podchraoladh as an rath a bhí air ar líne faoin teideal Motherfoclóir agus tá ag éirí thar cionn leis an dá thionscnamh.

Darach joined Jim Carroll at Banter’s Culture & Me event at the recent Cuture Night in Dublin Castle to talk about his grá for Dineen’s Dictionary and a rake of other things. If you only buy one book in 2017 written about our native tongue, make sure it’s the Motherfoclóir.
