Ireland Wall Map: Laminated, rolled
Ireland Wall Map: Laminated, rolled

5.0 out of 5 stars Ireland Wall Map: A Great Purchase, 6 April 2010
The map is very good and is a perfect size, great for any wall. The only thing one should be wary about is the fact that the product says, 'laminated'. The poster only has a glossy coat on the front and needs to be properly laminated with hard laminate if it is going to last. Apart from that it is an excellent map of Ireland showing all the Irish counties and Northern Irish districts. It also has two inset maps, one showing population density and population change in Ireland and the other showing the traditional counties and provinces of Ireland. For informative purposes, it has facts and flags for each of the provinces. All together, another great map from Collins!

3.0 out of 5 stars Irish Grammar: a Decent Buy, 13 Nov. 2009
This is an all right buy. I personally don't like it very much. I think the set out is very illogical and needs more structuring. The book itself does give you the answers you want, but in some areas it doesn't provide a very comprehensive explanation, for example some tenses and their use. I would recommend this book as a supplement to your Irish learning, as it is very useful as a quick-grammar-reference book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Collins Easy Learning Irish Dictionary, 1 Nov. 2009
This is a very good Irish dictionary, it's one of the best I've come across. There are three great supplements included in the dictionary which are great for complete beginners: a section on improving your dictionary skills, a section called 'Irish in Action' which is attractively laid-out and includes lots of useful phrases for common everyday situations and the final section, which I think completes the dictionary, is the Irish grammar and verb table section, which is brief, but achieves its purpose. Additionally the dictionary obviously has the Irish-English, English-Irish sections which are printed in different colours to make it less confusing. The Irish-English, English-Irish sections are also littered with helpful culture notes and notes on important grammatical points. The only thing the dictionary doesn't have is a pronunciation key, but it makes up for that with free downloadable information sheets which includes a comprehensive pronunciation guide amongst other things. Altogether a great dictionary for beginners!
