Whether your Irish is top of the class or absolutely uafásach, it's great to have the bare minimum when you head on holiday.
You know, just in case you ever want to talk about a group of people who are sitting right beside you or talk about the food in the restaurant where you're eating.
"What's the Irish for: 'I wouldn't give that to the dog'?"
Some of us use it religiously gach lá, others throw in the odd cúpla focal here and there and the remainder of people haven't spoken a word since their Irish oral in the Leaving Cert.
It's lovely to hear it being spoken and whether you'd like to admit it or not, you wish you were fluent in it.
And as for when you see it on holidays? Well, it just fills you with pride doesn't it.
Reddit User, Doylester is currently on their hollibops in Germany. They are staying in an Airbnb and flicked on the telly to wind down after their day of adventures.
They went flicking with the controls, as you do, and found that the TV had an Irish setting, meaning programmes could be subtitled and translated from German/English into Irish.
We're not even sure you'd get that feature on most TVs over here...
Great to see!
