Irish language resources online Posted by Bridgette on Jun 23, 2021 in Culture, Irish Language
Today I wanted to share some resources online with you to help with your Irish language journey.
Watching TV or listening to the radio online are some of the best ways to learn a language. If you’re also able to watch something that you’re already familiar with in English, then it will be that much easier for you to begin to make connections between the two languages.
Through here, you will be able to access news and events, as well as search for Irish language jobs! Some events include weekly conversation circles, weekly online classes, and more.
There is also a list of books that are perfect for adult learners. Or, just like above, you could try re-reading books in Irish that you are already familiar.
There are hours of lessons available on Transparent Language Online, and the above link is to a free 2 week trial. If you want the capability to learn Irish (as well as over 100+ other languages) online for free all year long, check out if your library offers Transparent Language Online!

For grammar, I suggest a glance card which contains all the basics of Irish grammar “at a glance”. It is a great Irish language study aid that features the conjugations of the 11 irregular verbs, 33 regular verbs, prepositional pronouns and lots more.
Here’s a youtube video featuring how to use a glance card.
I am curious as to what you use to help you on your language learning journey, so feel free to leave a comment below and share with everyone!
Lastly, I want to share a song in Gaeilge from the Irish group Seo Linn. It is based off of the Irish proverb:
“Ar scáth a chéile a mhaireann na daoine”
“We are shielded from the sun by each other, we rely on each other for
Go n-éirí an t-ádh libh go léir, good luck to you all! Tóg aire a chairde.
