I'd like to join in also, I don't have the book however. Thanks a millon Breandán for posting it in an seanachló (You certainly are a great moderator- you seem to know where everything is online) I'll just use the seanachló version instead- if that's ok as I don't have the book.

Dia Dhaoibh,

Here's the first file for Séadna. I hope it's helpful! :D

We have that in Conamara too. When somebody does something surprising or out of character.

Did you put those notes together? They seem very comprehensive. :clap:

Mick, I think it's great that you are up for this! Do you already have a copy of Séadna? As I mentioned earlier, the first chapter of the book is in Lesson 27 of Teach Yourself Irish and even comes with a sound file.


Not yet. I'll work from the Teach Yourself book for now, and try to get hold of a copy before we move on to chapter 2.

I'll try to read the book too. :D

I found this link on wikisource -
http://wikisource.org/wiki/Index:Seadna.djvu
I don't know how accurate it is. Looks like it's been transcribed from the old Irish script, but it could still be a school edition, I don't know.


While I googled "Séadna ebook" Irish Language Forum came in 5th place in the search. How cool is that.

"When does everyone want to start with Chapter 1?

How much time should we spend on each chapter?

Does anybody want to get together on Skype so that we can practice our pronunciation?

Let's go for it!"

It's a pretty long book, so I'd suggest starting at the beginning and lettling each person translate as much as they'd like with the person after them taking up where they left off. What people are saying here about the book actually has me a little freaked out(I only mentioned it because I thought that it would be a relatively easy children's book), but I'd still like to give it a try.
