Notes These folks apparently specialized in dictionaries. They will send you a flyer of available dictionaries "on learning your specific needs, i.e. languages and their directions (e.g. Ger-Engl or Engl-Ger or both), well-defined subject areas, not just broad description such as 'technical dictionaries.'" I haven't yet replied to that note with a request for Irish dictionaries. They also sent a short list of available books. They have books for learners of all the Celtic languages - more Breton books on the list than Irish! 1 Manx, 2 Gaelic, 2 Irish, 4 Breton, 2 Cornish, and 7 Welsh books. "There are, of course, dictionaries for these languages as well."
