In Britain, there is a fine tradition of writing and publishing
in Irish. Writers like Dónall Mac Amhlaigh, Pádraig de Baróid
and Máire Ní Chuinn have received much praise. The best place in
Britain to get Irish language publications is “The Four Provinces
Bookshop” in London. They hold over 2,000 Irish titles, and
can arrange mail order delivery. The best time to enquire
about Irish language books is from Wednesday to Saturday.
