About Úna-Minh Kavanagh

WHO AM I:

Haigh a chairde! Is mise Úna-Minh (that's my first name). My name is Úna-Minh Kavanagh agus fáilte is fiche chuig mo leathanach anso ar Patreon.

If you’re new here, hello! Is iriseoir mé. I’m a journalist and content creator by trade and a fluent Irish speaker based in Ireland. My grandad was from one of the Irish-speaking areas here in Co. Kerry (the Gaeltacht as it's known), and Irish was my favourite subject in school. I have a Bachelor of Arts in Irish and Journalism from Dublin City University and am a pure geek at heart. I run the website WeAreIrish.ie.

WHAT I DO AND WHAT YOU'LL BE SUPPORTING

  • I want to create accessible content in the Irish language; I may not be perfect but I know what's interesting to share. 
  • I left my full-time job in 2016 to go it alone and since then I’ve been working on a vast variety of projects from travel writing to social media management and live-streaming. Yunitex my Twitch alter-ego and channel is where I showcase what games and every week I stream bilingually in Irish and English and on Sunday I stream as Gaeilge (in the Irish language). 
  • I also have a YouTube account where I share my content that’s also in Irish. As a Patron, you get to see my monthly videos advance. This is about building a community that’s comfortable with bilingual approaches but also caters to more geeky topics as well things like food, minimalism, sustainability and travel.
  • WeAreIrish.ie is a website that showcases good, positive and uplifting stories from people at home and abroad. By supporting me on Patreon you're helping with the running costs of the site, the time it takes to put the stories up and you'll get to see certain content in advance.

By the way: I also run an Irish Language discord group called Craic le Gaeilge here - It's like WhatsApp but you don't trade your phone number! 
Goals
