Gaelic Sound Clips


These pages complement Gaelic Phrases for Every Day. On this and other Sound Clip pages you will find audio clips of common Gaelic phrases along with the written Gaelic and English words. You will need software such as a RealAudio or Quicktime, or equivalent, available in your browser to play the MP3 audio sound clips.
