Nollaig Shona Dhuit

I found this video of Enya singing Silent Night in Gaelic. Hat tip to Lew Scannon for discussing it in his latest post. I never knew it existed 'til I read about it in his Annual Christmas Rant at Unbrainwashed.

Big thanks to Enigma for posting it at Watergate Summer, as well.

Enya- Silent Night


As a fan of language, I couldn't resist swiping the list below from Ben Heine. Thank you, Ben.
