The intention of this paper is to explore the issue of the availability and suitability of language learning materials for third level Irish language degree programs. A general outline of resources currently available is given and some tentative ideas are put forward on how the resource gap may begin to be bridged using CALL. Two trialled methods that explore lexical acquisition and conversational output, both with and without computer assistance, are detailed and an analysis of their relative success from both the teacher's and the students' point of view is presented.
