Wow, this thread got way more fun than I expected! :D

I'm crap at Irish Gaelic but have studied Scottish Gaelic on and off for many years, for some reason or other!
Ta me go maith. Agus tu Fein?

Scottish Gaelic can be a lot harder for us. Are some words we don't use in Irish Gaelic. Plus other words for other things.
As I mentioned below I'm crap at Irish Gaelic but I can understand a good bit.

In Scottish Gaelic I would answer you, "Tha gu math, tapadh leat!" (or "tapadh leibh" if you were significantly older than me, if I were being formal.) Google translate says I should say this in Irish: 'Táim ceart go leor, go raibh maith agat!' Which looks about right?

Fear maith. Ní hé an teanga is éasca le foghlaim. Ach déanaimid ár ndícheall. ( Good man. Not the easiest of languages to learn. But we do our best )

Gu dearbh! (Indeed!) Do you speak Irish/Gaelige from childhood?
