Can anybody please tell me which is the text book (series) that is used to teach Irish in the schools in Ireland? I live in England, and have been learning Irish for a couple of years. Thanks.

Dia Dhuit a Larry,
There is no set series used throughout Ireland to teach Irish. I can just give you the names of the books I used/are using
For the Junior Cert(GCSEs):
Is Féidir Liom 1+2, Cúrsa Gaeilge don Teastas Sóisearach by Ruaidhrí Ó Báille. Publised by C.J. FALLON
Scaoil Amach Arís É 3, Teastas Sóisearach Ardleibhéal by Ruaidhrí Ó Báille. Published by C.J. FALLON
For Leaving Cert(A-Levels):
Fiúntas [Sorry I can't remember the authors and publisher of hand]
For Primary (Basic, really only for begineers but are nice easy reads. The flow of Irish is good):
Soilse Series published again by C.J. FALLON
I hope this has been of help to you. Can anyone else suggest any other school books?
Colm - Corcaigh

Colm - Go raibh maith agat
Could you please tell me how to ask "Why did he say that?" in Irish. I'll be even more in your debt :-)

The publisher of 'Fiúntas' 1+2 is EDCO - The Educational Company of Ireland and is by a number of authors.
