I suggest foinse. It gives short news snippets in Irish, and then gives a summary underneath it in English. As for free books, well, you'll be hard pressed since most (AFAIK) that are out of copyright are written in the old script.

If you want some practice writing/reading I can also suggest /r/gaeltacht on Reddit, as well as the Facebook group Gaeilge Amháin.

Try Beo! magazine. It is updated monthly, and each article has loads of Duolingo-style hover hints for more complicated words and phrases.

For small texts in Irish, you could look around on Vicipéid (Irish-language Wikipedia).

I went to vicipéid this afternoon and depending on your subject, the contents may be a huge text or just a little phrase, but let's see what i can find there, thanks!

The Duolingo-Wiki is very resourceful for external study materials! If you choose Irish on this page, you'll find reading material and lots of other stuff.
