Irish Language Resources
Here are some of the Irish language resources I have used …
- Bitesize Irish Gaelic
This is an online program in the Munster dialect established and run by Eoin Ó Conchúir. I love his audios as they are clear and slow for us beginners. This is a great starting point.
This another online program that has beginners, intermediate and advanced courses. It is largely in the Connacht dialect but gives reference to the other two dialects. It’s an excellent course once you get used to the speed of the Irish speakers on the audios and videos.
- Rang Gaeilge
This is an online site that answers your questions about Irish grammar through their blogs and emails.

- Duolingo Irish
This is an app you can use from your phone, or any other online device, that uses standardized Irish. It’s set up like a game and is very addictive.
- Irish Language Learners
Irish Language Learners is a fast growing Facebook page that posts Irish phrases, translations and pronunciations everyday. They are very responsive and post music It’s definitely worth following this

Irish Language Bodies and Support
- Conradh na Gaeilge
“Conradh na Gaeilge is the democratic forum for the Irish-speaking community and works on behalf of the Irish-speaking and Gaeltacht community to promote the language throughout the whole of Ireland and around the world. Since its foundation on 31 July 1893, members of Conradh na Gaeilge have been actively promoting Irish in every aspect of life in Ireland, from legal and educational affairs to the development of new media and services through Irish.“
