The secret to learning Irish: imitating what you hear -- listen to audio (#3 of series)

This is the third set of audio clips I recorded from the show Ros na Rún, which you can watch in whole here on the Internet. By isolating phrases and imitating them, I'm picking up the rhythm of Irish, and my comprehension and pronunciation is improving. So, why not for you too? Listen to the audio. Imitate what you hear. And repeat until you sound like the native speaker. #1 in this series of audio clips can be found here.
