I was wondering if anyone can recommend a textbook used in Irish schools. I've heard that the "Inis Dom" textbooks for years 1 through 6 were worthwhile. Any opinions or ideas on a good text book?

Thank you for the reply Diarmuid. I was thinking more of textbooks used in Irish schools. However, Im going to look into the Irish for Beginners. Have you found it very useful? Is it more along the lines of Buntus or is there more grammar?
Once again, thanks for reply, it is appreciated.

As far as text books go, I haven't found much yet. I have sort of the same question you do Mary. Mainly I have had another problem too: trying to get a good dictionary (preferably one with declinations of the words).

There is one online, which is Irish only, but will search for the forms of a word. Then you can use an Irish-English dictionary to get the meaning. An Foclóir Beag.
