Other Projects

There has been a general increase in the number of very useful websites, tools and other facilities available in Irish, in addition to those already mentioned elsewhere on this site.

Amongst these are an on-line synthetic speech generator, as well as very old dictionaries on-line.

In this part of the site, we take a brief look at some of these projects, and help to direct the user to them.

We hope to have occasion to add to this list over time.

>> Want to learn Irish?

If you want to learn Irish on-line, there are several sites that might be of interest to you. There is further information about courses at the following link: Irish On-line Courses.

LibreOffice - The Choice for Irish

We recommend it to anyone who is writing in Irish do download and use the free computer application called LibreOffice. This is an excellent wordprocessor that hosts a spellchecker and thesaurus, for example. One can make PDFs from documents easily as well.

In LibreOffice, it is possible to open MS Word documents, make changes, and save again as a MS Word document, if required.

An Foclóir Beag (Dictionary)

An Foclóir Beag, the Irish/Irish dictionay, is available on line. It offers more than the print version; for example, one can see verbs and adjectives in all their forms.

Potafocal

If you are looking for information, including translations, related to a word, you might not need to look any further than potafocal.com. This site uses many different resources to present to the user many different aspects related to the word. It even contains straight links to well-known sites such as focal.ie. It is well worth a visit.
