Irish Mammies & Daddies, How to Say 'Wake Up' in Irish.Oct 25, 2022
Tell your children to 'wake up' as Gaeilge, tomorrow.
Hopefully if you're here, you're interested in adding some Gaeilge into your home.
That would be amazing for your children, for them to hear the Irish language as they grow up.
It doesn't have to be daunting at all. You only have to start with one phrase at a time.
'Wake up' is a great one to add into your routine. It's short and sweet (maybe not for them), and they will be more likely to listen to you (at least the first few times) if you are using a different language; added bonus.
