My husband and I met in Galway, Ireland while we were both living there for a year. One of my husband’s housemates was a big Irish-language activist. I recently asked him if he could send a recommended list of sites to help with Irish language learning, he sent the following:

(1) “A good starting point for anyone looking to increase vocabulary is which is the online ‘dictionary’, well, really not a dictionary but a huge word source sponsored by the state agency for Irish, Foras an Gaeilge and managed by Fiontar in DCU”

(2) ” is also a good resource for words. Most of the Irish language organisations have bi-lingual sites :,, and so on. There’s an online bilingual news-source and the two Irish language newspapers also have sites and

My husband and I took Irish classes while in Galway but I dropped out half way through (it was making my classes in Ancient Greek and Latin more difficult). My husband continued and became fairly proficient! Alas, he has lost most of what he learned since then (that was back in 1991-1992!).

Hope the above information helps!
