About Me
italki teacher since Jul 6, 2017
I was born and raised in rural Ireland in the last century, in one of the few counties (Mayo) where, alongside native English, native Gaelic in its purest form was and is still spoken. In my twenties I decided to live abroad and learn some foreign languages, including coming here to the Canaries to learn their Whistled Speech, what you and many call Silbo Gomero, and I was soon a competent whistler of speech.

Great teacher i thoroughly enjoyed my lesson and would highly recommend, will be definitely taking more lessons as he has already given me the confidence to start speaking another language.

Is sár-mhúinteoir é Padraig agus bhain mé an-tairbhe as a rang. Mholfainn go hard é má tá tú ag iarradh snas a chur ar do chuid Gaeilge.

Patchy has a really enjoyable teaching method which gets you speaking immediately with a focus on correct native pronunciation.

Padraig is the real deal. If you want to learn Irish properly with the correct accent he is the only teacher I have come across that teaches it correctly. If you are a complete beginner, Irish from someone who speaks it fluently with an accent 'Blas' is a thousand times more authentic. He also is so full of energy and makes time pass so fast. I wish I had him in my school growing up!
