OVER THE LAST week or so, a Gaeilge-based meme has popped up on Facebook and spread around the Irish internet with glee.
It’s simple: people take a random stranger on Facebook whose name sounds kind of like a phrase as Gaeilge – and then send them a message continuing the sentence in Irish.
For example, someone called Leigh Annis
A basic grasp of our native tongue and some creativity is all that’s needed
Given the people sending them tend not to be Facebook friends with the recipients, it’s likely that the messages are sailing harmlessly into the ‘other’ inbox
And once they get posted on the Facebook page, Gaeilge-lovers in the 4000-strong group are taking delight in some of the creations
Even though it’s only been around a short while, some want it gone
While others are seeing the funny side
Sometimes, it’s not even people that are on the receiving end
And this guy even got in on the joke here
Well played, a mhúinteoir.
The first Gaeilge meme of 2016 has landed.
