A Chairde:
Lately I have been reading books by Irish authors. Most give a flavor for how the language translates, and some even have a smattering of Gaeilge. I do have one book- and anthology of Irish Women's Writing called "Wildish Things" - which has some poetry in both Irish and English. Does anyone have a source for other books like this, either dual language or Gaeilge?

Hi Doreen,

Try these sites / Bain trial as na suíomhanna seo leanas:

I hope you may find some books that interest you there. I'm afraid I can't make any personal recommendations as I'm not up to speed on the subject.

You should also try http://www.beo.ie/
This on line magazine has articles for learners and a system of translating individual words/phrases by laying the cursor over the word/phrase.

Let us know how you get on.

I can personally recommend litriocht.com.

I bought several books from them a couple of months ago. Their web site has a secure ordering system. My books arrived in Texas (via ground) in less than three weeks. In a couple of email exchanges, they have been very pleasant to deal with.

I will be ordering from them again.
