#75 | Class Clown: #WhyIrish and Motherfoclóir Duolingo Clubs

Where’s Darach? He’s not in the studio today, so Éimear and Gearóidín are running riot, throwing paper aeroplanes across the HeadStuff classroom and talking loudly.

During her curation of the @motherfocloir account in January, Éimear asked Twitter followers to tell her what drove their interest in Irish under the hashtag #WhyIrish. It was trending on Irish Twitter within hours. She tells Gearóidín all about it and the Duolingo classes and groups that were created on foot of it. There are also hedgehogs, handsome Norwegian architects and a man on the run from the law.
