How about an Irish dictionary where you can listen to the entries spoken aloud?
(Psst, interested in learning to introduce yourself, in the Irish language. Take the free Irish for Beginners course.)
March is the month for everything Irish! If you are Irish or not, a tourist or a native, it doesn’t matter at all, the events are there for everybody and there are many.
Starting the Irish month is Seachtain na Gaelige, spreading over almost 2 weeks, it will be on between 5th and 17th March, rolling straight into St. Patrick’s Day festivities.
Update: error is still showing on Thursday 11th February 2010.
Since Sunday 7th February 2010 I’ve had reports that the Irish dictionary at http://www.irishdictionary.ie (same as English Irish dictionary http://www.englishirishdictionary.com) is having trouble. The site is running, except that if you search for an Irish word it displays a database error. All other searches work fine.
One person emailed firstname.lastname@example.org but that email address bounced.
Let me know any updates if it’s back working again.
Thanks to Jonathon, David and Michael for the tips.
Irish Dictionary.org has been running since August 2008. During that time, over 150 members have joined, and there are now over 2,000 headwords there.
They have just announced that you can download the full validated Irish-English dictionary as a free PDF document.
I do quite a lot of writing on my computer in the English language, not so much in the Irish language. You’re probably like me in that you couldn’t imagine your life without an English language grammar and spell checker on your computer.
Thanks for reading. If you want to hear the Irish language pronounced, check out the lessons at Bitesize Irish Gaelic learn Irish online.
