Our Motto

Our Motto in my grandfather’s native tongue, Gaelic, is the greeting “Tá athas orm buaileadh leat” — or “pleased to meet you”. I imagine when spoken well, “Tá athas orm buaileadh leat  can be a real attention getter. I can envision getting responses like “Whats that you said?”, or “What language is that?”, or “I dont understand Spanish, sorry!” — all of which can be excellent ice breakers. It is hard to meet new people, especially strangers, when you rise to the great height of 4 foot 11. I tend to blend in most places, well, except for my astonishingly ugly glasses which can get me at least a double take now and then.  So hopefully you’ll wish me ” Go n-éirí an t-ádh leat! “, because being at least partly Irish, I’m surely going to need it!
