It's a shame to bury your national language.
Long live the Irish and other languages that became neglected after an occupation!

The point should be this: it's a lovely, lyrical language and in learning it, you will broaden your mind and your horizons.

And of course, this can be said of any language you could choose to learn, whether English, Swahili or Tagolog.
