This thread is for an Irish study group. At the moment kevin, Vijay and me are going to start working through a resource or two together. The question of what dialect/textbook to use came up, and after some back and forth we've settled on learning Connacht Irish (which is a compromise between me (Munster) and kevin (Ulster) ), and for starters we're going through Colloquial Irish by Ihde, et al. Depending on how we do we might then go through Learning Irish by Ó Siadhail.
EDIT 10/29/18: Since the Connacht group kinda trailed off, me, Vijay and ceid donn are going to start on a Munster group. We'll use Teach Yourself Irish by Dillon and Ó Cróinín (the old 1960's edition, not the 1993+ edition). As groups form and end, the most current group and assignment will always be at the top of the list (groups in bold).
EDIT 1/9/19: And, perhaps as expected, the Munster group dissolved after some time. Now Vijay has convinced me to restart the Connacht group. Updates to follow.
Anyone else is free to join at any point!
