Sounds like she is one of my cousins, who are so into nationalism, that
they have gone over the top. Visited Northern Ireland some years ago,
and I hope the US never ever gets that bad..
Me, raised Catholic, my grandather married a german/scot/english
protestant. So there is hope for Ireland one day.
This all does bring up a topic, when a language becomes so entrenched
that it will not change. But change is a natural thing. So the rise of
an alternate lingo that is used by people in their homes, but the
official one is used out in the open. For to not use the official can
bring about Death.
