I would add a Gaelic style font for the other two columns if you
can find such. In TeX (LaTeX) there is a font family eiadcc.
I would put the illo and the English on the left hand page and the
Gaeilge & Gallic on the right, stacked one atop the other.
Or if you want to be really fancy interline the text, Gallic on top
(it's the longest) with its Irish translation right under.
