It's a pretty good story. I've been reading it with a CD to clarify pronunciation. I'll give the ISBN info as soon as I can get back to my books.

You might be interested in this material I did a few years ago. Using the unabridged version, which is infinitely better than the school version (which is the one they recorded recently). Séadna is really a story within a story.

OK...a bit over due but here none-the-less:

Séanna le Peadar Ó Laoghaire

ISBN # 19011756002

As far as I know this ISBN is for the book and CD set.

The book is apparently written closer to standard Irish which is a bit ironic in that the good Father Ó Laoghaire was much opposed to any "standardization." It does have quite a few idiomatic expression in it that are referenced in the glossary.

I have found it very useful and enjoyable. It has taken some work but not nearly as much as I thought.

Le meas,

James

WAY better. Original dialect, unabridged. No CD, though. But you have my lessons!
