Irish is spreading like a sexually transmitted disease

Concubhar O Liathain / Irish Independent
There are some of my generation and older who listen to Irish as it is spoken by the coming generation and they feel pain; it is so unlike the rich poetic language they spoke themselves. But this is Irish for a new age and a new generation. It's a modern language of communication, and preservation as if it were in a museum isn't compatible with that and is not an option.
