Hi all!

I need a bit of help:

1.) the word in Irish for "catechism" the book used in religious education in Catholic schools.

2.) the plural of the word "creachlaois" Creachlaoisi? or creachlaoiseanna? Anybody?

1. Catechism = Caiticeasma

2. The plural form of creachlaois = creachlaoisí


Le meas,

Larry.

Although cathechism is more often called "Teagasc Críostaí" - Christian Teaching

Well, what I was referring to is a very specific book used in parochial schools in New York that contained questions and answers of religious matters that all children had to memorize. Was that same book used in Catholic schools in Ireland?? And what was it called in Ireland?? Caiticeasma??
