If you have no particular attachment to a dialect, I would pick up "Learning Irish" by Ó Siadhail as mentioned above. It teaches a particular subdialect of Connacht Irish, which is the dialect with the most speakers. You'll then have plenty of TV shows, radio programmes and novels in that dialect as well.
You really need to pick a dialect to actually learn a consistent pronunciation as there is no standard pronunciation.

Labhrás, can you recommend a dialect for the OP? Would you advise a learner, faute de mieux, to learn the Connacht pronunciation?


I can't tell. I haven't chosen myself yet ;)

I thought you were generally pro-Connacht.
