Irish Learning Resources

To learners of the Irish language:

Finding resources along your journey may initially seem difficult – especially if you are from an area where foreign language materials are sparse and hope of coming across rare language books has long since been lost.

You may want to take a look at the websites to some Irish bookstores, such as An Siopa Leabhar (http://www.cnagsiopa.com/) or Easons (http://www.easons.com/), if ordering Irish resources through your local bookstore or via a general online retailer seems as though it will be problematic. I mention these stores in particular as they are the main bookstores I visited while I was in Dublin, Ireland over St. Patrick’s Day and because it was there I bought several Irish language books.

Following is the list of Irish learning resources that I am currently using. Under music and videos I have not included all of the links I have used, but rather intend to point in the direction of where to find such materials. For a more detailed account of my thoughts on each resource, see here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P9vvX7fdCAI.
