The Book

An annotated guide to Graiméar Gaeilge na mBráithre Críostaí. Pól Ó Murchú M.A.

If you’ve always been interested in the whys and wherefores of Irish but were held back by the dearth of information available, then this book should set you on the right course. A Grammar of Modern Irish can be used as a guide for those who want a handy reference of Irish usage.

A Grammar of Modern Irish is an indispensable aid for anyone who wants clear explanations on the rules of Irish. Two Dublin businesses deserve praise for getting this key educational tool out: Environmental Publications and Eyecon Design. Environmental Publications set the text in serif and sansserif fonts, making the book all the more delightful to use. Eyecon Design ingeniously came up with an artistic design that incorporated the newly set compass into the background of the cover. But the inside text is also what makes this book so special. The Table of Contents is now in expanded format, making it easier to find your subject. The Index was reorganized so that specific topics can be at your fingertips in no time. Headers for even-numbered pages now have the chapter title, while the odd-numbered pages give the topic discussed. This is a reference book you wouldn’t want to live without.
