A few people have been asking about CDs and stuff.

Some things I have found very useful are two CDs produced by Oidhreacht Chorca Dhuibhne for Children:

There are books with the full text and many notes to go with them

Rabhlaí Rabhlaí is a collection of traditional verses and rhymes.

Scéilín Ó Bhéilín is a set of traditional stories.

Both CDs are highly polished professional productions with great sound effects. They use a range of speakers from the Corca Dhuibhne Gaeltacht, of all ages from 8 to 80.

My kids loved Rabhlaí Rabhlaí but have outgrown it now. They still love Scéilín - especially since the stories are all linked with areas we have spent holidays in.

I think adult learners would enjoy these too; rhymes are great because you can easily learn them.

The other CD set I would recommend is

Ó Bhéal an Bhab - Bab Féiritear is a sceálaí from Dún Chaoin if memory serves correct. She was involved in both the other Cds too. There are a range of stories on the CDs. Again, there is a book with the text and notes.

This is directed more at adults.

At the risk of repeating myself...

Buntús Cainte is now available in a triple pack, all 3 books, and all 3 CDs, and all for €20.65. Thats about $27.

Its €25 e7ae43ebd939fde5d4a06e6 here.

Roll up, roll up...
