Frásleabhar Raghnallach

This is an Irish phrase book was published by the Ranelagh arts project with help from an Irish conversation group located in the area, Cabairí Raghnallach. It is aimed at giving opportunities to the public to use whatever little Irish they may have in the multicultural Ranelagh village, especially as languages from all over the world can be heard in Dublin today. They recognize that people with a limited grasp of Irish are sometimes reluctant to use it in public and they are hoping this phrasebook can help the people of Ranelagh overcome this obstacle, especially within their local business environment.
