Learn Irish with Liam Ó Maonlaí

The ever-fabulous Liam Ó Maonlaí recorded a beginner's Irish class last year for the Irish Independent, and it's now available online. It's designed so you can just listen and repeat phrases, but if you like, there are also PDF transcripts so you can see how all the words and phrases are spelled.

Learn Irish with Liam Ó Maonlaí

I haven't listened to the entire series yet, as my computer was having a bit of trouble with some of the sound files. However, I liked what I heard enough to buy the CDs - they were available free in that issue of the Independent (Good for them!). I also want to thank Liam for doing this course, and for all the great work he's been doing in the areas of trad music and Tara preservation.

Those of you who are not familiar with Liam's work in traditional Irish music may be familiar with his band Hothouse Flowers.
