as i'm interested in ireland as a whole, i'm also interested in at least getting an idea of gaelic....now the "problem" is, that i come from vienna, so there's neither any english speaking persons here nor does someone know gaelic. at amazon.com i bought several books of how to learn gaelic, for example "learning irish" by mícheál ó siadhail and some dictionairies, but i've not started yet working through this do it yourself course for i have a lot of things to do at the moment, but can you give me some hints, tips or maybe you can just recomment a book or a web page which might help me...thank you

a few good sites for learning the irish language are gaeilge.org, the site you are currently on of course and on the irish site of www.iol.ie search for sefton i think its called and thats a really useful site. also check out
www.litriocht.com they offer every irish book in print and alot of them would be useful to learners of the language such as yourself. they also have cd`s and tapes as well to help you in your quest to learn irish. also im sure they have a few irish language cd-roms as well whick might be useful.

Dia Dhuit, A Clemens,
Some more sites that might help you: http://listserv.heanet.ie/lists/gaeilge-b.html http://www.beo.ie/ple/
There must be many Irish in Vienna, and even though most Irish people aren't interested in the language, there may be a few there that would be willing to help an enthusiastic student. Are there any bars or cafes in Vienna where Irish people congregate or any Irish clubs where you could enquire? I suggest that you place your message on the above sites and you might be lucky and find some such person.
Ádh mór (good luck)
