Maybe this thread should be moved to the useful links or learning resources section, or maybe we should have a new separate section for something like holidays, songs, rhymes, poems, and similar items?

That's a good idea. Or maybe we could sticky this one, if nobody has any objection. I know too many stickies looks cluttered.

This is a learning alphabet that I've found in the book Seanchas an Táilliúra (Tadhg Ó Buachalla - Seán Ó Cróinín a bhailigh - Aindrias Ó Muimhneacháin a chuir in eagar) of which they say there are or were several variants. Perhaps somebody here might be familiar with it or know of another version of it.

A an béal mór - A the big mouth
B an práta - B the potato
C an crú capaill - C the horse shoe
D sáil na bróige - D the shoe-heel
E (e) an tsúilín chaoch - E (e) the blind eyelet
F an fliopa - F the flap
G (g) na spéaclaí - G (g) the spectacles
H drom na cathaoireach - H the chair-back
I an gearra-bhaitín - I the little bâton
J an camán - J the hurley
K an eochair - K the key
L an speal - L the scythe
M an ime agus - of the butter and
N á ithe - N eating it
O an fáinne - O the ring
P an casúr - P the hammer
Q an eireabaill - Q of the tail
R (r) an bhuatais - R (r) the top-boot
S an péistín - S the little worm
T an maide croise - T the crutch
U bogha na sciathóige - U the pannier-bow (perhaps today it would be lámh/cos ciseáin?)
V an brístín bréide - V the little frieze trews (trousers - I don't know what you'd call frieze in today's language)
W lapa an ghé - W the goose-foot
X an chros - X the cross
Y an ghabhlóg - Y the little fork
Z an brístín leathair - (this is translated as the shoe-last, but it looks more like leather trousers to me - a shoe last is ceap gréasaí)

This is a page taken from the Duchas.ie website, where finally they've starting putting on-line the results of the 1937 Schools Project. It's referring to the Lúrabóg Larabóg game I posted up earlier.

grain, ear, fistfull, sheaf, stook, stack, rick
