Irish - Grammar Exercises


These translation exercises are based on E.G. Quin, Old Irish Workbook (Dublin: Royal Irish Academy, 1975). They are designed in the first instance for ASNC undergraduates taking Part I, Paper 8 (‘Medieval Irish Language and Literature’), and should be used in conjunction with the grammar sheets and other resources given out in class. Further more detailed exercises on specific aspects of Old Irish grammar can be found on the Medieval Irish CamTools site.

Use the drop-down to select an exercise to work on. For each question within the exercises, use the Glossary window to look up vocabulary and grammatical information; there is also a Notes area in which you can note down ideas and answers of your own. To reveal the correct answer to each question, click on ‘Reveal’. To advance through the individual questions in each exercise, click on ‘Next’.
