Our Works from 1978-2016
We have also published a few works of Irish (Gaeilge)
music in the past, in very limited quantity. Hopefully
our works have led to increased use of the Irish language
in a small way. Next time we will cover the Irish language
songs that we have recorded and published over the last
35 years or so.
Our English language books and podcasts focus on Irish
genealogy and history. They will be covered at a later date.
