Is what it is... Harry Potter in Irish. Bought this for my girlfriend, and she loved it, so if you're into the Irish language, then this is a great wee book, teaches you lots of new words you probably haven't heard of before!

Harry Potter is essential reading regardless of what language you speak (or read), so I won't dwell on the plot itself.
The translation is top-notch. It may be a bit advanced for beginners but it's definitely worth sticking with. Once you familiarize yourself with the magical jargon, which most people wouldn't have come across beforehand, you begin to fly through the pages, enjoying J.K. Rowling's masterpiece for what it is.
Máire Nic Mhaoláin has done a tremendous job translating and one can only hope that the Chamber of Secrets (or 'Seomra na Rún' as the in-sleeve teases) is in the works.

This is exactly what I wanted, the book is in perfect condition, and it's all as Gaeilge! I can't wait to read it, hopefully the rest of the series will eventually be published in Irish, that would be amazing.
