The purpose of this forum is to provide a place for people who are interested in the Irish language and various Celtic languages to discuss them, to practice them, and to share information about them, particularly (but not exclusively) in the context of traditional music and culture.

This is not a "translation forum," per se, though translation requests may occasionally be honored at the discretion of the moderators. If you're seeking a one-time translation for something like a tattoo, engraving, wedding vow, or other such purpose, we strongly recommend that you visit our friends at ILF: http://irishlearner.awyr.com

Red, do you know of any Irish language websites that are simpler than http://www.beo.ie ? I can't quite handle that one.

Hmmm...not off the top of my head, but I'll ask around.

Beo used to have a serial for beginners called "Liam agus Bairbre," but they discontinued it a couple of years ago (not sure why, as they didn't finish the story as far as I can recall).

This wasn't *quite* what I had in mind but I have found a couple of simply written stories. They're called "Buntus Cainte: The Lost Episodes". Buntus Cainte is the name of the Irish coursebooks/CDs that Martin bought me in ireland. They're really good. I have gotten most of the way through "Sa Bhaile le Nóra agus Pádraig" and I am reasonably sure that these were NOT written by anyone involved with production of the book... :lol:
