By Nick Fonda – A crowd of 50 or more gathered in the Main Living Room of the Wales Home on Saturday evening for an introduction to a bit of little-known history about a language that played no small role in the settlement of Canada. Danny Doyle, who addressed the crowd, is one of the approximately 2000 Canadians (.005% of the population) who count themselves as speakers of Gaelic, one of the oldest European languages. At one time it was the language of, among other places, Galicia (in what is now Turkey), of Gaul (now France), of Galicia (a province on the west coast of Spain), of Wales (called Pays de Galles in French). It was once widely heard in Canada as well. Danny began his lecture by teaching the crowd to respond, in Gaelic, to the question, How are you? The reply, I am well, is tàim go maith.
