Let's revive the Irish language, one Gaeilge pun at a time

Gaeilge, am I right?

Irish is being viewed by some as a dying language, but we need it to stay alive because when we're on holidays with friends and some local creep starts harassing us, it's vital that we have a vague knowledge of our native language to communicate with each other to plan an escape route.

Like most people, I only studied Irish for 14 years so I've naturally got a very minimal knowledge of the language. But of what I know, I use to the best of my God-given ability, with puns. I implore you to do the same. Whether it's a quirky t-shirt design, a line in a poem, or the punchline of a joke, let's make Irish cool again.

Here's the best Gaeilge puns I have come up with over the years. It's likely they will single-handedly save our native tongue and I will probably get a thank you letter from the President. Please, do something cool with Irish today before it's too late and we lose our ability to talk about non-Irish speakers when they're in the same room as us.
