Tyrone Gaeltacht[edit]

There's a very interesting documentary on YouTube about the Tyrone Gaeltacht (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h5cvPskVm3Y), and the scholar on Tyrone Irish(Pádraig Ó Baoighill) is recounting his visit to see Eddie McCullagh in a pub in Greencastle in 1956 and being told that the best native speaker in the area was Johnny Bán McAleer in the townland of Muine na Míol. Ó Baoighill, who is a Donegal man, recounts how his own people used to talk about the native speakers of Tyrone and the differences in their Irish. Another video (here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g1No3JGNGd8) on Irish in Caisleán Glas recounts the visit in 1910 to it by a woman who recorded local Irish speakers like Anna Ní Threasaigh and her brother Éamonn Ó Treasaigh and their songs. This article is definitely missing a lot of the area's history by not having a mention, never mind a whole section, on the language in the area. 79.97.64.240 (talk) 22:47, 13 April 2014 (UTC)
