There is a free encyclopedia called wikipedia, you will find it on
the idea of this encyclopedia is that everyone can change it. It also exists in Irish!!! (, though it has just over a hundert articles, while the "big" languages like english and french etc. have over 10000. It would be cool if you have time to go and have a look at the page, and if you want to, to extend it.
Then there is Wiktionary, the free Dictionary, on or in irish on
i love to have a look around there and it would be fantastic if there were more entries in irish (also english-irish translations)
i dont know if i am allowed to write things like that here, but i just thought you might be intersted (if you dont already know about it) and i as a non-irish-speaker would think it great if there were more entries in the english-irish translation.
have fun...

As well as that, someone has started a wiki book project to create a learning resource

I just don't have time to particpate in all these worthwhile endeavours...
