Cazz, a chara,
Here are some things that helped me when I was starting out:
The book-and-tape series Buntús Cainte (start with #1; there's three of 'em).
It's filled with useful conversational Irish, and you can listen 'passively' to the tapes as well as working intently with them (I think the passive method helped me hear the rhythm of the language).
Get a simple book or two in Irish -- maybe you could contact the online bookstore www.litriocht.com, tell them the level you are at. They can make recommendations.
Attend an immersion program, in North America or Ireland.
Correspond with your fellow learners (letters or e-mail).
Study and use some Irish every day.
Go néirí leat/Best of luck,
