Visting Ireland? Or are you Irish and afraid of pronouncing Gaelic aloud or lost the cúpla focal? Do you find it difficult to memorize Irish words that you’ve never seen before? Did you ever want to show your Irish heritage, but find the Irish language difficult?
The Focal Me iPhone app is your secret on the go. Order a pint of Guinness in Irish, or throw a sly insult at your friends.
The Irish language is very different to English. The words your hear may sound very different, making them hard to remember.
99 funny, useful (and insulting!) words and phrases in the Irish language
Audio recordings for each of the phrases
Listen as many times as you like
Not sure what you want to say - then shake your iPhone for a random phrase
Impress your friends, or better yet, impress Irish people when you’re visiting Ireland.
The App includes controversial “Póg mo thóin” for those fond of a bit of the Irish humor. But if you don’t have some of the Irish humor, perhaps this app is not for you? In that case, you should not learn how to insult your friends in Gaelic. You should not learn smart old sayings to insult somebody. You should not learn to say the cheesy “Kiss me, I’m Irish”, in Ireland’s native tongue.
Go on, buy the App - it's cheaper than a packet of Tayto Crisps (Chips) and lasts much longer!

Ratings and Reviews
A perfect app
I feel bad that this app has 1 star reviews for simple user mistakes. There’s nothing wrong with this app! It has a great selection of words and phrases and its already helping me understand proper pronunciation.
Great fun app for beginners in the Irish language
This app works perfect on my iPhone. No issues at all with the pronunciation part of this app.
Does not work on iPhone 10
Won't pronounce anything. Too bad 👎🏼👎🏼

Did you check your "mute" button on side of iPhone? If on Mute - no audio will be heard.
