An Siopa Leabhar Supports Irish Enterprise With Huge Selection of Bilingual Christmas Cards

An Siopa Leabhar is supporting products made in Ireland this Christmas by selling a huge selection of Irish-made Christmas cards again this year, in Irish and English, at the Conradh na Gaeilge bookshop at 6 Harcourt Street, Dublin 2 and online at

An Siopa Leabhar has stocked up on bilingual cards made in Ireland only with works of art by Irish companies such as Cártaí Rúbaí, Glencairn Abbey, Cló Mhuire and Cártaí de Paor being showcased. Money from the sale of Irish-made Glen Gallery cards in An Siopa Leabhar will also go to the Irish charity Aware that helps people suffering from depression.

Daragh Ó Tuama, Manager of An Siopa Leabhar says:

"The bilingual cards we sell in An Siopa Leabhar are always in demand from one end of the year to the next, but our Irish-language Christmas cards fly off the shelves each and every December.

"We sold every card in the shop these past few Christmases so this year, An Siopa Leabhar has the biggest, widest and most artistic selection of cards on sale in the capital, not to mention the biggest and best Irish-language and Irish-made presents that would make Father Christmas himself green with envy!"

Not only can Dubliners buy a huge selection of cards from An Siopa Leabhar at the Uimhir 6 Irish-language centre on Harcourt Street, but all the Irish-language cards and products from the bookshop are now available to order online at as well.

The Irish-language community around the world can purchase the best of Irish-made cards and products through An Siopa Leabhar’s online store this Christmas, and Santa will satisfy Irish speakers of every age and ability with presents of Irish-language books, board games, jigsaws, music CDs, toys, BábógBaby bears, DVDs and more from An Siopa Leabhar.
