I'd agree.

Irish can be so much more about the story than the syntax or grammar. It's a language that lends itself to saying so much by saying something completely different at times.

To try to give an example, talking about a bachelor with a love of sleeping on the floor boards. Translate it in to the richness of Irish and you'll see heads nodding in understanding.
