My first lesson in the Irish Language

I’ve always had a soft spot for the Irish. Maybe because they remind me of my own people, or maybe because they’re the ones who’ve always been at the brunt of English jokes. This obviously makes me believe that they’ve been in the right, more or less of the time.
So, as always I start with SHEIT/WITY and i find some verbs and nouns and learn to create our 3 main sentence types of cases. Accusative, Genitive and Nominal.
