      To keep me interested, as I am working on a language for me and my sister.

      Honestly the way duolingo works is usually enough for me to continue. I did use this ( http://www.memrise.com/course/71612/basic-irish-2/ ) which I think really helped get a very very basic understanding of Irish & is pretty fun. However it doesn't go over the copula* at all which is used a lot in the first few lessons. Luckily it isn't used much afterwards on duo, but it's still important to know...I still don't have great understanding of it though so here's this: http://www.irishgaelictranslator.com/wombat/lessons/copula/ , http://www.eirefirst.com/lesson6.html , http://www.nualeargais.ie/gnag/kopul4.htm , http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/Irish/Lesson_Two#The_Copula_-_An_Chopail
