Dayfdd, I think you should declare on the Irish to try to take back all
those vowels they stole from the Welsh so many centuries ago. Afterall, they
haven't figured out how to use them properly anyway.

Though we are not now that strength, which in old days moved earth and heaven,
that which we are, we are. One equal temper of heroic hearts, made weak by time
and fates, but strong in will. To strive, to seek, to find and not to yield.
