Welsh learners meet up in Ireland - any interest?


I am new to SSIW and would really like to meet other learners and fluent speakers living in Ireland. I live outside Limerick in the midwest and can meet people in Tipperary, Kerry and Cork even Galway city interested in a paned a sgwrs neu cwrw a clonc.

Cofion cynnes,


Hello. I live in Clare and would be delighted to meet fellow learners of Welsh. I knew I couldn’t be the only one! Olive


Well, I can’t meet up, unfortunately, as currently dw i’n byw yn yr Unod Daleithiol . But I wish you pob lwc! A dw i ddim yn gwybod how much Gwyddeleg you have, but if it interests you, I am making some Cymraeg/Gaeilge resources, mostly on Quizlet for now.

I started SSiW about 2 months ago, and I started Irish as a complete beginner about 2 years ago, so I’d be interested in Cymraeg/Gaeilge resources. (The only similar resource I’ve seen so far is Rhisiart Hincks’ Youtube channel where he has a series of ‘Breatnais do thosaitheoirí’/‘Welsh for beginners’ videos, which are introductory Welsh lessons taught through the medium of basic Irish. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCBoNJF_ChmYPiOhc7JWds1g/videos

As for the meetups, I’m retiring to the west of Ireland, but not till next year, so if anyone’s still around and looking to do meetups then, I’d be interested!

Newyddion da Olive. Mae’n wych clywed gennych chi! Well would be really great to meet up somewhere for a coffee ? There are other learners but in places far from the midwest in places like Derry, Belfast, Dublin Fermanagh actually some in Connemara

Haia Ceris, There is a memrise course for learning Irish through the medium Welsh

Gwyddelig Trwy’r Gymraeg - Memrise

Also Rhisiart Hincks does an annual Celtic languages weekend course each April in the Urdd centre in Llangrannog can learn Breton Cornish through Wlesh and beginners and intermediate Iriish through Welsh

I organise an annual meetup each November at the Oireachtas na Gaeilge equivalent of the Eisteddfod for Irish speakers learning Wlesh

Dw i’n siarad Gwyddeleg a dw i’n dysgu Cymraeg ar lein. I am away until early November but would be delighted to meet up with Liam and anyone else i siarad Cymraeg . I am happy to meet in Limerick…Bunratty…Galway or wherever suits. Fermanagh is a bit far this time! I will keep an eye on this thread and hopefully we can sort something for around 10th Nov on… Diolch yn fawr. A

S’mae pawb
I have been learning Cymraeg with SSIW just over a year and a half. Unfortunately haven’t had the chance to meet or speak to anyone in Cymraeg apart from friends on zoom or sesiwn Cymraeg with Nia. I live in Derry in the north of Ireland. I also have never been to Cymru, next year gobeithio. Athro Gwyddeleg dw i. So maybe we can arrange a zoom meeting from this post. And eventually a meeting in Ireland. Pob lwc pawb.
