Best Children's Books as Gaeilge

For today's Book Club we're celebrating Seachtain na Gaeilge.

Claire Dunne from Children's Books Ireland was in studio with a round-up of the best children's books translated as Gaeilge. 

When we think of books in Irish, you might be filled with dread at the memories of the stories that you studied in school, but that shouldn't be the case.

There's now a range of new modern books in translation, like Roald Dahl, the Famous Five, and funny non-fiction science books.

Whether you're looking for a read to get back to basics with Irish, or a particular book for your child or teenager, there's plenty to choose from.

Watch the interview back here:
