Sláinte Mhór ar fud an Domhain

...de la blogo, From the Balcony, de Máirtín Ó Muilleoir:

They tell me now that Éamon Ó Cuív has decided the Irish language revival is a global phenomenon that Foras na Gaeilge are allowed to accept grants from around the world.

First one to arrive was from enterprising Gaeilgeoirí in Kuwait who want to set up Cumann na Gaeilge there.

Not that the lingo isn't alive and well in other far-flung parts. After leaving Philadelphia train station last week, the first sign I saw (in any language) was this one for Sláinte bar and grill. Really lifted my heart to see it, even on a snowy day, 3,000 miles from home.

Turns out it's the latest business venture of Philadelphia's much-loved Irish American stalwart Mike Doyle...
