      Is léir go mbaineann _____ (theme) leis an dán seo.


      Is léir gur duine ______ (characteristic) é/í (he/she)_________ (character name)

      To answer it you can say: Baineann an dan/sceal le ...........

      some themes might be: duine og, sean duine, an dulra, use the themes you know from studied poetry and pros

      For characters you can say: Is leir gur duine.......

      some types of people include: bronach, cliste, foighneach, cairduil etc. just if you say someone is nice quote from the poem something that proves what you say is right.
