Does anyone know any good study tips for Irish grammar and the tenses? No matter what I do, they just don’t stick in my brain! I’m at the end of 5th year now, and am planning to get grinds during the summer.
My Irish is awful. So any tips, sites, books would be much appreciated.

Thank you! I’ll try this 🙂
tenses— divide verbs into groups– single sylabble like cuir, glan , ol . Learn basic tenses by practising same sentences in different tense. Then move on to 2nd group like ceannaigh, imigh . Do as above. Then take verbs ending in -il, -in ,-ir-,is e.g. cuimil, thaitin etc. Do as above. Then move on to the irregular verbs– 11 of them. All the correct endings etc are in all the text books. Another tip is to write out a paragraph in any tense and then rewrite in other tenses. Practise and getting them by sound is a great help. Adh mor ort!!!!
