Cuisle: “Iris Don Aois Nua”
The magazine Cuisle was published over a period 18 months between 1998 and 2000 when I was just starting to learn Irish. At the time I would read any material in Irish that I could put my hands on, and I quickly subscribed when I heard about the slick new Irish language magazine that had just come out. I enjoyed Cuisle a great deal, in part because it opened a window for me onto a vibrant, modern Irish language community in the Gaeltacht.
I am grateful to Foilseacháin an Phobail Teo. and Uinsionn Mac Dubhghaill, the magazine's original editor, for permission to scan the old print editions that were in my basement and put them up on the Internet. My wife scanned the pages, and I created the searchable PDF versions using OCR software. Unfortunately, the quality of the pictures is quite poor, but I was trying to limit the size of the PDF files (each one is 5-7MB as it is). Enjoy!
