Study Irish

I'll be providing study materials to get people started. Bring a pen or a pencil and a notebook if you'd like to take notes.

We'll use Gaeilge gan Stró as a general basis (I have both the introductory and intermediate texts) as well as other various resources gathered from the private tutoring and classes that I attend. We'll also use some conversations from the TEG (Teastas Eorpach na Gaeilge - The European Certificate in Irish).


If you own an iPhone, iPod Touch, or iPad that is running iOS 6.0 or later, I can share a my photostream of Irish children's texts that you can use for translation practice.

    I've posted a few updates to the discussion forums. If you haven't yet taken a look, please do. There is a new online Irish dictionary (Focloir.ie), as of last month that has audio clips of all 3 major dialects of the common Irish words. The dictionary isn't finished (Currently @ 30%, but they claim that covers the 80% English use case). It's slated to be completed by the end of 2014 with a print edition available in 2015.

    There are also two good dictionary apps for iOS and Android smartphones, and TG Lurgan has an app for iOS/Android that has various music videos as Gaeilge.

    I'm finding the Collins Pocket Dictionary iOS app to be a huge help, as I somewhat dislike flipping through a paper dictionary.

    Here's a link to the discussion forums:

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
