Definitely pidgin. The question on the paper is "An bhfuil tú ag toiliú leis an togra chun an Bunreacht a leasú atá sa Bhille thiosluaite? So I'd guess the answer should be Táim or Nílim.
Seaf - you might back me up but is the Gaeilge version on the ballot paper pidgin Irish with its Tá and NFL?
Should it be Toilím/ NI Thoilím? ??
Níl a fhios agam. Maybe Aontaim.

Tá/Níl definitely pidgin. The question on the paper is "An bhfuil tú ag toiliú leis an togra chun an Bunreacht a leasú atá sa Bhille thiosluaite? So I'd guess the answer should be Táim or Nílim.

20 years ago me and wifey could afford to buy a houseen Syf.
2 young people of similar jobs/incomes now can't in 90% of the State.
How is that better.
People on low incomes in 1998 were able to get Social housing pretty quickly.
2018......different story.
20 years ago you could get a hospital appointment pretty quickly -now unless you're at death's door you could have to wait up to 2 tears !!!!
Villages had shops and post offices in 1998.
Towns had loads of busy pubs.
But you continue in your little inexperienced (FG supporting?)bubble.

PS I'll concede on the motorway network where it exists.

The poor woman.

Better standard of living, massive technological advancements and the horrors of the Catholic Church with its tentacles in all aspects of Irish life starting to fade from living memory. Our economy is fast developing a large high-value services and IT industry that is envied by many of our bigger western neighbours who still struggle with high unemployment. The church’s inability to even play much of a role in this referendum speaks volumes for the positive, secular humanism that has came to dominate most younger peoples’ outlooks in the last two decades. People care about others more, at least enough to promote a more inclusive society for LGBTQ, disabled and ethnic minorities. This was barely exsistence even twenty years ago. It may have been a grand place for a white, able-bodied straight person but please talk to just one person who doesn’t conform to that norm and see if they found the Ireland of 1998 or 1988 more welcoming to them.

People are able to get divorced, marry who they like, and hopefully tomorrow will know they can get critical medical care at home too. The days when those in power could shove huge social issues under the carpet are gone. Thankfully.

That's great, but you never addressed any of his issues.

I literally answered his question.

No, you said 1, 2, 3 are great. You never replied about his x, y, & z.

Are you saying the 1,2, & 3 out weigh his x, y, & z?

Or are you just saying its better for certain people?

Or perhaps you just think its better as things are going ok for you and you've read some stories about how terrible it was 20 years ago that made you feel aghast.
But in reality you don't actually really know as you don't have experience of the underbelly of either societies

And I know one you said which I contend to be incorrect and that is that people care more about others now than before.... I really don't think so

The positive & negative answers to a question starting “An bhfuil” are Tá and Níl. The personal pronoun is not required.

The Board's Irish Teachers finally found their niche  :P

Course a natural native speaker would  just know what right and wrong, wouldn't need all this grammar melarky  ;)

Great stuff. A brighter future for the women of Ireland who have been let down for far too long.
