Hi guys. I am a content writer trying to learn Irish so I joined this community for advice. What is the best way to learn Irish (mainly for content writing)?

I also have an astrology blog and want to translate a few articles from English to Irish so any advice would be helpful.

Get hold of Teach Yourself Irish 1961 (the Myles Dillon edition) and start learning. You can download a PDF with embedded audio files from https://archive.org/details/TeachYourselfIrish

It is unlikely that you can learn Irish well enough to make the content quality, if you look at it from the perspective of Irish language skills. I mean, good Irish can come from someone who's been speaking it since childhood. Everyone else might have it good, but not the best.

I disagree. It would definitely take a long time and lots of concentrated effort but there are plenty of Irish speakers of non-native backgrounds who have excellent Irish.

Take Chinua Achebe, Vladimir Nabokov or Samuel Beckett as examples of this, all have contributed to literature in a language they did not have natively.

I am definitely not trying to undermine the knowledge a native speaker has of their language, but a learner is capable of great knowledge too.
