  1. Hey there I’ve just come across your site and really like the way its laid out and the content. The Irish classes will mean I’ll definately be a regular visitor as I ned to spruce up on my Gaeilge by the end of the year in order to pass an exam! Cheers Fi

  2. Hi Fi, welcome to the site and thanks for the comments :)
    You won’t get much sprucing up done here i’m afraid, my own Irish is dreadful and the Progress in Irish lessons are quite basic. Still, I plan to post all the lessons in the book (70 or so), so I hope they are of some help to you. What exam is it that you’re doing?
