Hello! I am an English teacher who is taking 19 students to Ireland and wales this summer and would like to give them a crash course on Gaelic. I want to play songs for them and have The Rankins/Mary jane lamond on CD but I've searched the web for lyrics (English-Gaelic) but haven't had any luck. Can anyone help me?

Try Clannad, Aine Minogue, Maire Brennan, etc. These can be found at any large music store, usually in the international section. The inleafs almost always have the translations. I am unclear exactly what you are looking for. Is it just songs(recent)as gaelige or a songbook?

My personal favorite is Pádraigín Ní Uallacháin; her CD A Stór 's a Stóirín is a collection of 36 sonds, mostly traditional, sung in Irish; the enclosed booklet includes all lyrics with English translation, tunes and guitar chords. Half of the songs are clearly songs for children (although some have been recorded by popular artists), while the other half are less so.

Her later CD "an dara chaiceann" is much richer and more challenging music, in sean-nós tradition and accompanied song, these are researched and recaptured traditional songs and tunes. These are wonderfully compelling. The enclosed booklet documents sources and the Irish lyrics and English translation.

Both are Gael-Linn productions (CEFCD 166 and CEFCD 174) and I purchased one directly from Gael-Linn via the internet and the other at Virgin records in San Francisco.
