Rudolph Thurneyson's "Grammar of OLd Irish" (the
standard reference work)
Lehman's "Introduction to Old Irish" (it's okay, but
kind of confusing and has some errors, apparently)
Antony Green's "Old Irish Verbs and Vocabular"
John Strachan's "Old Irish Paradigms and Selections
from the Old Irish Glosses"
Quin's "Old Irish Workbook"
My main concentration is infact Old Irish, so I can
help you if you'd like.
