What got you interested in studying Gaelic?

For me, the interest got started when I heard Enya back in the 80s. I was a teenager then and my hearing was intact. I found the lilt and sound of the language very beautiful. It reminded me very much of the Elven languages in Tolkien's books.

When I lost my hearing some years ago I quit my studies in languages because I couldn't hear them anymore and I got in a bit of a funk for a while.  However, I realized I could learn to read and write them if I wanted. So, I went back to the Celtic languages. :)
