Collins Easy Learning Irish Dictionary
on 1 November 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!
