Bitesize Irish Gaelic may be the only site related to Ireland that you visit, but I highly doubt it!

This website is awesome. It’s almost like facebook, only it’s more for those who are Irish or just interested in the Irish Heritage. You can talk to people and leave posts. You can do videos and pictures. It’s fun, and there’s alot of great people on there.
Hmm, the link won’t work for me: http://Irelandlive.com
Touched that Jody mentioned my blog – RSS feed problem now fixed (I devoutly hope!). One of my own favourites is Emily Herzlin’s Letters To Aran. May seem a bit weird for someone living on the Dingle peninsula to follow a blog about the Aran Islands written in New York. But, hey, that’s the beauty of the internet…
Looks like a lovely blog http://letterstoaran.blogspot.com/
Thank you for the mention! I love your blog as well! Can’t wait to hear about your upcoming visit to Dingle.
Especially the weekday evening program “The West Wind” which is a traditional music program and available for download from their web site.
Where did my “clare.fm” go?
Did your first post go missing? Sorry, something must have happened with it not saving. Yup, Clare FM was my local station when growing up. A mighty station!
Dia Duit ar maidin!
I also frequent http://www.rte.ie/rnag/, andhttp://www.irishculture.org/ (for those in the Boston area). I listen to Raidio na Gaeltachta everyday. And also, RTE has several free iphone apps, so you can easily listen to them whenever. Quite helpful. I have checked out TG4 but have yet to actually watch any of it. I will definitely be checking out some of the other links people have posted. Go raibh maith agat!
I listen to Raidio na Gaeltachta and then BBC NI the most of any Irish sites. I used to read a couple Irish blogs other than yours, but one writer moved to Japan and the other moved to the States. Both quit blogging.
Go raibh maith agat!
Hi I frequently get onto http://www.irishecho.com.au which is a site with news on how things are going back in Ireland and stories regarding Irish Australian’s they also print a paper which i grab most times when im at my local pub, and this usually has different stories then are online whic is good.
So far, mainly RTE and TG4. I’m starting to get hooked on the latter – it’s quite useful to watch “bitesize” installments of different programs, like the nightly news. Also the dramas, which give a good feel for the typical speech. It’s great to have images and context, and continuing stories.
I checked out An American in Ireland from the earlier posts – that looks great for my purposes, with a visit coming up in September. Any more like it? I’m still checking out the site for the Johnny Keenan Banjo Festival in Longford, which I’ll be attending; I also look into The Session from time to time, as I try to educate myself on Irish session music.

If you pass through Limerick, let us know!
Just in case some people haven’t seen it, here’s an earlier article on watching TG4 television online:
Other than my own (IrelandWithKids.com) and Bitesize Irish I read Irish Fireside and Celtic Voices most often. I also visit Felicity Hayes (if only her RSS would work I would visit her more) and the blog for Kansas City Irish Fest. This Slice of Life is a mom from Cork, View from an Irish Backyard and And American in Ireland are also great sites. I also follow the Irish Central website and read Ireland Calling, Irish Roots Cafe and The American in Ireland there.
(That is honestly more than I thought I read. Hunh, no wonder I can’t get any work done!)
Cool! So let’s make them clicky (am I right?):
I visits these sites often because of the importance of their cause for Ireland. There are a lot of gaelic speaking people and I would like to be able to speak intelligently with them.
