On the website is a well organized chart of irregular verbs. However, I need some help in beginning to understand the way it is set up. Can someone give some example for me.
Thank you, Don

They are laid out giving the singular order first, i.e. the basic root:

Tar


Then the English equivilent :

come


Then the interrogative/question:

Ar tháinig tú? (Did you come?)


Then the positive answer:

Tháinig mé (Yes.)


And then the negative answer:

Níor tháinig mé (No.)


Hope that's some help to you Don.

Slán go fóilleach.

Dia dhuit, a Dhoin,
I'm afraid I'm a bit short on time at the moment, but you may find these links to be of use to you.

http://www.csis.ul.ie/focloir/

An Foclóir Beag - from the University of Limerick is an on-line Irish/Irish dictionary.
And;


http://www.verbix.com/languages/irish.shtml

Simply type in the verb and they conjugate it for you. It's a little easier to read than the one at An Foclóir Beag.

Le meas,
Maidhc.

Gabh mo leithscéal Don but as I'm pushed for time all day today with a short sleep and a long drive ahead of me and the entailing lack of contact here until Monday again, it may be no harm to welcome any other helping hand in on your quest.

Fáilte romhaibh isteach le cuidiú le Don anseo mar a rinne Maidhc ar ball. Maith an fear Maidhc.

'Oíche mhaith agaibh' a deirim i mo theannrith amach ar an doras!

Slán go fóill,
Seosamh

(I can still get back to you Mon. Don)

Be careful with the verbix link.
They seem to only have a small database of verbs, and anything outside the database is liable to be completely wrong.

An Foclóir Beag will find the correct verb given any form.

Tá tú ceart faoi cheann sin, a Aonghuis.
I had just a short preview of that and after a better look I've found that to be true. It (Verbix) also didn't seem to give the question forms either.
I did notice, though that An Foclóir Beag didn't list the verb 'urghabh', but Verbix gave what appeared to be a correct conjugation when compared to the verb 'déan(amh)', which it list as a similar verb, at An Foclóir Beag.
This seemed promissing until I tried to compare it also with the verb "stop". Verbix gave a past first person form as 'shtop mé'incorrectly and a quick look over at An Foclóir Beag gave a more trusted form of "stop mé".
Maybe after a little more work they'll work the bugs out, but until then, I must advise against using Verbix. :(

Urgabháil, conquest, is a portmanteau word; and not a verb you'd need very often! You can look up gabh (gabháil)
