Nótaí (Notes)

So after watching this video you may have noticed I used the word 'beannachtaí' as the Irish for both 'greetings' and 'blessings'/ Well that is because 'beannachtaí' has both meanings. A 'beannú' (pronounced ban-uu) is a greeting (singular) and it also means blessing (singular).


Also, the Irish for 'Saint Patrick' is 'Naomh (pronounced nay-av) Pádraig'.
