5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Book, 29 Sep 2003
By 
T. Connaughton "4babies" (Drogheda, Ireland) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
This book is an excellent book, and although it is a dictionary you can also read it page by page if you are interested in how the Irish speak English- which is certainly colourfully! Also very interesting as my granny is quoted throughout the book, so I hear a part of my childhood being spoken. Many of the words still used locally, to make a rich vibrant and wonderful form of English. Only the Irish could speak like this!

5.0 out of 5 stars an excellent source book, 20 Jun 2000
This is a must have for all students and interested parties of Irish literature. Most words here are standard in Irish speech but do not appear in other 'English' dictionaries. Sometimes the syntax of Irish speech is explained with its origins in the Irish language. Considering that Joyce's Ulysses is considered by many to be THE novel of the twentieth century this dictionary is a must to help simplify some of Joyce's [and other Irish writers'] prose.
