Here, did you know that oul' Paddy could speak Chinese?

It's my favourite ever Irish short film and it's now on You Tube. Daniel O' Hara's Yu Ming is Ainm Dom



I'm in a video frame of mind today.

  6. Is é seo an ghearrscannán ab fhearr liom. Ceapaim go raibh sé sa tríu bliain nuair a chuir ma mhuinteoir Gaeilge é seo ar súil dúinn.

    Cuireann sé fíor brónach in aghaidh dúinn - is fíor nach labhraíodhtar an Gaeilge anseo ach an oiread, agus freisin tá sé deacair é a lorg fiú sna réigiúní Gaeltachta...

    Ach fós, is scannán iontach é :)

  8. Lovely film.

    Being a Dane I find it hard to hear the difference between Irish and the English that is spoken at the West coast.

    Good I am staying in the South East :-)
