Pronounced “Dane Guh”, the title translates as “With One Voice”.

20 entertaining and enjoyable Irish-language songs, appropriate to the language, musical and vocal ability of primary school children. Book 1 provides music for Junior and Senior Infants, 1st and 2nd Classes. The songs will stimulate children both musically and linguistically.

D’Aon Ghuth is intended for use with the Irish national curriculum for music from 2005.
There are suggested activities for pupils and there are helpful notes for teachers. A CD is also included, containing brilliantly scored backing tracks and high-quality sample performances.
