Irish people in this Facebook group have come up with a gas Gaeilge meme

And now they’re popping up everywhere.

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

The Facebook group where it all began is called “Gaeilge más féidir Béarla más gá” and it’s starting to take off elsewhere as well.

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
