Richard, a chara:
On-line bookstores:
Cupla Focal -  (Ireland - new books: all Irish language)
An Litriocht -  (Ireland - new books: all Irish language)
Kenny's -  (Ireland - new and used: some Irish language)
Books Ulster -  (Ireland - used: some Irish language)
Cló Mhaigh Eo - (Ireland - new books for children: all Irish language)
Cló Iar-Chonnachta - (Ireland - new books and music: all Irish language)
I've ordered from all of the above sites and never had a problem.  I'm sorry I don't have any U.S. sites for you. (I've found it cheaper to order books shipped ''economy'' from Ireland!)
For pronunciation rules on line try: (IPA phonetics)  (has sound files)
Hope this helps!

Subject: book information,etc.

Could any list members please provide the names and web pages of reliable Irish language book dealers in Ireland & the U.S.A.
Also, is there a web page giving the essential rules for the pronunciation of Irish.
Thank You,
Richard T.
