    Perhaps, but I know quite a few Scots who are very nationalistic and pro-independence but have absolutely no interest at all in the Gaelic language. If anything, thier interest would be in Scots

    You can see what the current Scottish Government website has in relation to the language here:

    I would not imagine that things would change hugely in the wake of independence or increased devolution, which appears at this stage to be a more likely outcome

    How will Scottish independence affect Northern Ireland?

    In the context of your question I think your “Urban Irish” refers to the Irish that the majority of us learned through our schooling in Ireland. It is was largely based on the Christian Brothers standard grammar text and the Caighdean Oifigiúil (the “government” standard for official communication. As far as I recall I never had a teacher who was native speaker during my school days, so I had little exposure to dialects (other than in some prescribed texts).

    I spend much of my time in Corca Dhuibhne and do notice many differences in grammar between what is used locally and my “school Irish”. Examples include “Ná fuil?” rather than “Nach bfhuil?”; “Bhíos” rather than “Bhí mé”; and “Thá” rather than “Tá” in certain circumstances. I’m sure that similar variations exist in the other dialects

    An saol o dheas is probably my favourite programme on RnaG, both in terms of knowing what is going on locally and listening to native speakers using all those wonderful forms of verbs
