An Mála Mór makes learning Irish easy and enjoyable! The bright, colourful books and interactive Story Sacks were created in conjunction with the themes of the Irish National Curriculum. The main aim is to make learning the Irish language fun for children!

An Mála Mór is not just for Irish Naíonras but for all early years settings that are introducing the Irish language to the classroom!

The products offer exceptional value to educators and teachers, enabling them to purchase a long lasting resource that will enhance the teaching of the Irish classroom in any setting.

Included in the range are bright and colourful books in both A3 and A4 size that bring the central character ‘Teidí’ on some great adventures!
