  1. Truly, uimhir a do appears much better. Not only is it easier to read, and thus gets the message across more effectively; it also leaves room enough for the attractive Irish scene in the background to be more noticeable. Number 2 might be even better if the stones and fence posts to the left were left out. They seem to deflect attention away from the “Bitesize Irish Gaelic” rectangle, which is more important than the stones and fence posts. Perhaps changing the color of “with Eoin” to green, to match with “Learn” would add more harmony to the overall design, plus unite the ideas of “Learn” and “with Eoin.” The repeated use of blue and green in the overall picture lend a relaxing, attractive quality to the cover. Excellent work!

  2. Dia dhuit, conas ta tu? I prefer uimhir a Do’ because it looks more attractive to the eye. Uimhir A hAon seems older and outdated to me. If I were to go in the store then I would grab up uimhir a Do’. Sla’n.

  3. Uimhir a Dó.

    Somehow strikes me as sharper and more compact. Why that’s better, I really couldn’t articulate. In the end I suppose “suum cuique” is what it comes down to.


  4. No question in my mind….the second one wins by leaps and bounds…it is legible and attractive, number one feels a bit chaotic to me……but i am blowing my name into the pot of luck…as i would Love to win! I am on the road touring right now and will be home in mind november. Love to you and sasa,

  5. Definitely prefer option 2 Eoin ! The text is clearer to read and the background picture has more of an Irish landscape feel to it.

  6. “Uimhir a Dó”

    We purchased the bundle already and I love what it adds to the online experience. It’s so handy for our active, homeschool family!

      1. This can be tricky. If your computer is configured to an Ireland keyboard, then it’s as simple as typing AltGr+.
