An Claideamh Soluis

The name will be familiar to students of 20th century Irish history, but to refresh hazy memories, it was the official newspaper of the Gaelic League/ Conradh na Gaeilge and many famous revolutionaries, including Pádraig Pearse, contributed articles before 1916. Now, Tuairisc.ie (which rapidly seems to be becoming the most influential Irish-language website) has decided to reproduce an original page each week, transcribing from Gaelic to roman type.

Ah, the Lightsabre. A fine paper in its day. But joking aside this is a very welcome move. It's always interesting to see contemporary reporting of historical events. And the Irish language perspective has been left out of far too much Irish history writing.


THE SWORD OF LIGHT Thank you very much for the link. A window into a worldview.


As a very new beginner, I would be interested in seeing Irish in everyday form in order to be able to pick out the words and phrases as I learn them. go raibh maith agat.


Go raibh maith agat. Sinn an-simiúil
