Buntus Cainte (English: Basic Speaking) was a programme aimed at teaching the Irish language that was broadcast on Radio Telefis Eireann in Ireland, beginning in 1967. The show was presented by Maire O Neill and Aileen Geoghegan. The programme catered for people with little or no Irish. Phrases were spoken by the presenters in both Irish and English, and were also overlaid (in Irish) on a simple static cartoon relating to the phrase. Buntus Cainte is the most successful course in Irish ever, and is in continual demand. Now for the first time the course books and listening material are available as part of the same package. The material from the original recordings has been remastered and is now on audio CD attached to this book.
