Where might one find a list of recently published Irish language books. I'm just looking for a decent fiction book in Irish which I can buy for a friend for Christmas.
Is there an Irish section of a newspaper or radio station which publishes reviews or something?
You can filter by Irish on book depository. they having ratings etc. might come in handy.
@CPTM If you're looking for the hot seller for leabhair ghaeilge you can't get better than Madame Lazare, Irish book of the year.
Litriocht.com or siopaleabhar.com are the best websites for Irish books in general
Thanks UpForTheMatch. That's actually the one I went with in the end. Either a great choice, or the same present absolutely everyone who knows him will buy! Time will tell!
Can anyone recommend nice books for a six year old girl, just starting to learn Irish (that I can read to/with her)?
Good selection on Litriocht.com. The link below is for 0-5 years old as she is only starting to learn. I was fond of the Bran books with my kids - not much text and often had little flaps on the page to lift up and explore.
I'd second the Bran books, oldies but goodies!
Several of the Julia Donaldson books are on siopagaeilge.ie
These are lovely https://www.siopagaeilge.ie/ga/collections/childrens-books/products/mamo-cois-tra-granny-at-the-seaside
In my experience you have to buy them all, almost, so try to focus on the ones with lots of words/pages.
The Bran books are very expensive for the amount of reading - the only exception is "Bran Agus A Chairde Ag Spraoi" which has ten stories for €12.50.
The Cúigear Cróga books are great, lots of words per page.
"Fionn Mac Cumhaill Boscra" is good too. Four books, each with lots of words. And a recording of them being read in Connemara Irish.
