Richard, a chara:
 
On-line bookstores:
 
Cupla Focal - http://www.cuplafocal.ie  (Ireland - new books: all Irish language)
 
An Litriocht - http://www.litriocht.com  (Ireland - new books: all Irish language)
 
Kenny's - http://www.kennys.ie  (Ireland - new and used: some Irish language)
 
Books Ulster - http://www.booksulster.com  (Ireland - used: some Irish language)
 
Cló Mhaigh Eo - http://www.leabhar.com (Ireland - new books for children: all Irish language)
 
Cló Iar-Chonnachta - http://www.cic.ie/cgi-bin/index.asp (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:
 
http://www.ling.uni-potsdam.de/~green/gaeilge.htm (IPA phonetics)
 
http://www.celticpagan.com/celt/pron.htm  (has sound files)
 
Hope this helps!
 
C.

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.
