Thanks so much, you have pointed me in the right direction. I’ve found a few local teachers at home for the summer and good reading material for Ulster Irish. It’s nice to know the book I’ve ordered is still beneficial :).
I got to speak to fluent native speakers too, they introduced me to the dialect and about gaeilge in general.
I want to support this forum for other new learners as well as using it. So I’ll make a new topic with a fantastic document which includes tips and advice from an Irish polyglot to help you learn a new language, and see it through to fluency.
