How to Introduce Yourself in Irish

To ask someone their name, say “Céard is ainm duit?”.
The response to this is “Is mise ____” or “____ is ainm dom”. This means “My name is ___”.

To ask someone where they are from, we say “Cé as thú?” They might reply by saying “Is as _____ mé”, which means “I am from ____”.

If you want to ask someone if they have a job, say “An bhfuil post agat?” The answer to this question is “Tá post agam” or “Níl post agam”, meaning “I have a job” or “I don’t have a job”.

“Cén post atá agat?” means “What job do you have?”. To reply with what your job is, you can say “Is múinteoir mé” for “I am a teacher”. Simply replace the word “múinteoir” with your occupation. Here is a list of possible occupations:
