Progress in Irish: Lesson 1

This is the very first lesson of Progress in Irish. It would be handy if you had the text as I don’t think I will be posting the sections ‘Learn’ or ‘Read’. Progress in Irish (Máiréad Ní Ghráda ) is published by The Educational Company (ISBN 0-86167-159-7) and available from any of the Irish online book stores.
