WHO AM I:
Dia dhaoibh a chairde,

My name is  Úna-Minh Kavanagh and I'm the creator of Hit Point Media. Fáilte chuig mo leathanach anseo ar Patreon.

If you’re new here, hello! I’m a journalist and content creator by trade and a fluent Irish speaker based here in Ireland. My grandad was from one of the Irish-speaking areas here in Ireland (The Gaeltacht as they’re known), and Irish was my favourite language in school. I have a Bachelor of Arts in Irish and Journalism and am a pure geek at heart.

Video games and live-streaming are my passions and I have one main goal as a creator: I want to create accessible content in the Irish language that’s free from the intense grammatical and often snobby approach by other people.

A few years ago I left my full-time job 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 now live-streaming. Yunitex my Twitch alter-ego and channel, is where I showcase what I’m playing as well as doing creative streams and every Sunday I stream as Gaeilge in the Irish language. I also have a YouTube account for Hit Point Media where I’ve started sharing my geeky content that’s also in Irish.

I really want to keep this up, BUT I can only do this with your support. With your support, I can keep creating live-videos, edited videos and more in the Irish language which suits a casual audience. This is about building a community that’s comfortable with bilingual approaches but also caters to more geeky topics.

By the way: I also run an Irish Language discord group called Craic le Gaeilge here
