Synopsis: From Goodreads.


I think this is the best book I read on the Irish language in a long time. Not only am I learning Irish vocabulary and all the different peculiarities it has but I’m also learning about the Irish culture, way of life and the Gaeltacht.

Also, all the fun bits that are found in the twitter account are found in the book. The fun bits include “A fada can make all the difference” and all the interesting side information that are included along with the definitions of the different words.

If you want a fun book to read on the Irish and learn from about language and culture then this is the book for you.
