Our Irish Language Books
The Irish Roots Cafe publishes both CDs and
Books in the Irish Language. Today we highlight
two classic hardbound works by noted historian
John O’Donovan. The English and Irish appear side
by side within each hardbound book. Additional
material appears in Engish at the rear of these
volumes. As part of the season of Seachtain na
Gaeilge, we present them here.

Two distinguished titles
1. The Tribes and Customs of the Hy Many

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.

Seachtain na Gaeilge
March is the month to promote Irish language.
We have promoted SNAG with live events in
the community for the last 6 years, based
on singing and teaching you to sing in Irish.
As the folks at SNAG put it, expert or beginner
it makes no difference. All efforts are
appreciated. Who would discourage beginners
from becoming acquainted with Irish (Gaeilge)…
Locally we held events at the Celtic Ranch
in Weston, and Brownes in Kansas City this year.
A 3rd location on March 12 see us in Louisburg,
Kansas at the St. Patricks night dinner.
