I am not disagreeing with you. Down south they simply use Irish as a stick with which to hit the Brits, they don't speak it any more than the people of Rome speak Latin. I absolutly hate it when the BBC refer to the Irish Prime Minister as the Taoiseach when the job is Prime Minister.We get it..Prods bad, Taigs good.. Hurry up with the United Ireland.
Just because they grew up listening to Tiocfadh ar la, doesn't mean they can speak the language.
There's more Polish in NI than Irish speakers ffs.
Cardiff has more Cantonese speakers than Welsh speakers but everything has to be in frigging Welsh
