How to Say You Liked Something in Irish, in the Past Tense

Fáilte ar ais welcome back , we're going to look at how you say you liked something. as Gaeilge, in Irish.

So rather than saying 'is maith liom', which means I like, we're going to look at how to say that in the past tense. We're also going to look at three different ways, so stay until the end so that you get all three, and then you can sound like a native speaker.

Ach ar dtús. Firstly, if you would like to be able to add some Irish to your email, so your work emails or your personal emails, then we have a really easy, handy PDF that you can download and use at work to add some Gaeilge to your daily work emails. 

Ach ar aghaidh linn, on we go. So



I liked it 

'Thaitin sé liom'

[ha-hin shay lum] /h aːtʲɪnʲ ʃeː lʲɪm/


I liked that 

'Thaitin sé sin liom'

[..shin] /sɪn/


I really liked that 

'Thaitin sé sin go mór liom'

[..guh  more] /ɡ oː moːr/


Now, pronunciation disclaimer, as it goes for all Irish and all videos. There are three different dialects in Irish and phrases and words are pronounced different across the dialects. You can type any phrase into and you can hear it pronounced in each dialect.

For example in Ulster, you do hear this T, and it sounds more like hatching. However, in Munster and Connaught they tend not to pronounce the second 't'.
