On obscure national languages

Let's face it, English is a lot wider than it should be. In Wales alone, only 17% (ish) of residents can speak Welsh fluently, and the fraction of Welsh Speakers only is almost undetectable. Whilst it is a strong language, that is more descriptive than English and teaches the speaker better grammar, it has to be a limited language. In Ireland it's almost the same, except it's only 2% that use it fluently, mostly in the Gaeltacht regions. It's sad to think that these foundation languages of nations are being muscled out by the Anglo influence, and this week's video highlights that. Watch out for Frank Kelly, aka Father Jack ("Arse!") in a straight role.
