Anyway, at the Hurling Award Ceremony every year the announcer makes the awards in Gaelic and I was looking up different words in the Gaelic language. One set of phrases struck me hard:
Hello - Dia Dhuit (Pronounced - Jee-uh Gwitch)
Literally meaning - God be with you.
Good Morning - Dia dhuit ar maidin (Pronounced - JEE-uh Gwitch air MA-jin)
Literally meaning - God be with you this morning.
You can see the Christian influence on the culture and language of the people of Ireland…. Kinda made my day...
So if you are bored after church with the American Football spectacular on TV surf around the web and look for the GAA - Hurling championship…. You will have fun and Dia Dhuit (God be with you)
