A blog by an Irishwoman, written in both English and Swedish, depending on what humour is on me....
En blogg av en irländska, skriven på svenska och engelska.
Just scroll down to find the English bits among the Swedish, or vice versa.

Ta Gaeilge agam freisin, más é an rud é go bhfuil éinne eile le Gaeilge ag léamh mo bhlagsa.

Ich verstehe auch ein bisschen Deutsch, je parle un petit peu francais och klarar av lite norska med.

Wondering about the background of the blog? They're the Cliffs of Moher, in the neighbouring county, County Clare, 8km long, 700m high, and magnificent. Well worth a visit if anyone is around the West of Ireland

so proud to be Irish today

A Uachtaráin agus a chairde,
Is féidir linn!

(with apologies to an Banríon, HRH Elizabeth and President Obama, oops, O'Bama)

translates as:
Dear President and friends,
Yes we can!

the above phrases are a combination of the phrases spoken in Irish, as Gaeilge, by 1. the Queen of England, and 2. President Obama, in this most momentuous week for Ireland.
No prizes for guessing which phrase was spoken by President O'Bama ....!
