At the end of the alphabet, there's this line - "Mise annso agus fios agam" LIAM Ó MÍODHACHÁIN - but that doesn't add very much information, I'm afraid. This is what is on the preceding page, if that's any help:-

Mise ... ("It's me, ...") is just a complimentary close, agus fios agam, a warranty that he knows what he is talking about.


SEO dhá cheann deug des na sceulta simplidhe bhíonn
á innsint ag Micil Ó Muirgheasa dos na scoláirí
thagann go dtí Iol-Scol na Mumhan gach samhradh.
Tá siad lán de ghreann agus de mhagadh, agus má
bhainid oiread gáire as an léightheóir agus bhainid as
na daoine bhíonn ag éisteacht le Micil á n-innsint,
bead'sa lán t-sásta.

Tá sceulta fiannuidheachta a bhfuil caint chruaidh
chasta ionnta ag Micil leis. B'fhéidir, le congnamh
Dé, go bhfuighbhimís amas ar chló do chur orra lá

Tá Micil trí bliadhna deug a's trí fichid, agus ní
fiú a rádh go bhfuil aon Bheurla aige. Tá a chlú
agus a cháil mar sceulaidhe leathta ar fuaide na
hÉireann. Gura fada buan in ár measc é chun
Gaedhealg do leathdh agus gáire do bhaint as
lucht foghlumtha na teangan.

To the reader.

THESE are 12 simple stories that are
told by M. Ó M. to the students
that come to I-S. na M. every summer.
They are full of humour and joking, and if
they make the reader laugh as well as
the people listening to M. who's telling them
then I myself will be fully satisfied.

There are Fianna/fictious stories which include hard and difficult
speech by M., too. Perhaps, with the help
of God, we will take aim at printing them some day.

M. is 73 years old and it is not
necessary to say that he doesn't know any English. His fame
and reputation as a story-teller is spread all over
Ireland. May he be long and enduring among us in order to
spread Irish and make the learners of the language laugh.

R - Righ-Ghaedheal mar is cóir; - King of Gaelic as is (right and) just,

rí is just a reinforcing prefix: a very Gael

Yes, is an intensifying prefix, and can also be translated as "real" which comes from the Spanish word for "royal" and therefore is also derived from the meaning "king" and has an intensifying usage. :prof:


WARNING: Intermediate speaker - await further opinions, corrections and adjustments before acting on my advice.
My "specialty" is Connemara Irish, particularly Cois Fhairrge dialect.
Is fearr Gaeilge ḃriste ná Béarla cliste, cinnte, aċ i ḃfad níos fearr aríst í Gaeilge ḃinn ḃeo na nGaeltaċtaí.
