I also really appreciate that her parents stuck with with the Irish language instead of giving her an English name. I hope that she speaks Irish. It is a very beautiful and ancient language that is nearly lost except on the west coast of Ireland. It is also very difficult to learn. It is not a modern European language that is based in Latin either.
