Unlike most teach-yourself Gaeilge books this one tackles the grammar without pretending you can just "pick it up". No you can't. If you are truly interested in learning the foundations of Irish over 2 years, if you are fairly good at languages, if you are OK about learning a specific dialect (Cois Fharrige, just west of Galway)... then this book is the one to get. If you need some colloquial Irish in the mean time, why not get one of the lighter books & go through it in parallel. Incidentally, if you are mortal you will become very confused about the copula, among other things, but keep faith - there is light at the end of the tunnel.

A very good publication which I bought originally in 1993 for private study. It has very detailed grammar in the later Chapters which are not for the faint-hearted. Other reviewers have suggested a 'lighter' book for beginners. I agree entirely.

The book concentrates on the Connacht dialect but gives differences between that Dialect and that of Munster in its ample appendices. I advocate regular viewing of Telefis Na Gaeltachta(TNaG)or listening to Radio Na Gaeltachta(RNaG) to increase exposure to the Munster and Ulster Dialects.

11/07/09. Pleased to report that the book and CD version is now available with a different cover. More strength to the Irish Language.

This is an excellent introduction to Irish. It concentrates on giving the learner a real linguistic model of how Irish is spoken on the west coast of Ireland. The only drawback is that at times it can be a bit boring, but of all the courses I have seen this is probably the best.
