Tins Dictionary of the modern Irish language, with 
explanations in English, is the outcome of a project 
conceived a few years ago by the members of the 
Council of the Irish Texts Society. On the initiation 
of Mr. G. A. Greene, M.A., then Vice-Chairman of the 
Council, they decided to compile, with the assistance of 
Irish speakers and scholars throughout Ireland and 
Great Britain, and under the direction of competent 
Editors, a small Irish-English Pocket Dictionary for the 
use of students of the modern tongue. As a foundation 
for this work, about 12,000 words were collected from 
existing glossaries, from the spoken language and from 
modern writings, and sorted into slip form. The 
Editors who were asked to carry out the task of editing 
this material, Father O'Leary and Mr. David Comyn 
and, at a later stage, Mr. John MacNeill, found them- 
selves, through the pressure of other work, unable to 
fulfil their intention, and the help of Father Dinneen 
was eventually secured. 

In carrying out his views as Editor, Father Dinneen 
found it necessary to make many alterations on the 
slips handed to him, involving labour which would not 
have been incurred had he been appointed in the first 
instance. Indeed, Father Dinneen has so amended and 
expanded the fragmentary materials submitted to him, 
that the present work may be regarded as practically 
his creation, and the Council gladly acknowledges its 


indebtedness to him for bis severe and patriotic labours 
in bringing the work to a satisfactory conclusion. 

The members of the Council wish to add their own 
sincere thanks to those of the Editor to all tln^c 
gentlemen who have assisted the undertaking, either by 
reading proofs, or by the compilation of lists of Inral 
words, or by personal assistance rendered in different' 
ways to the Editor. The names of those who have 
given financial aid will be found at the end of the 
volume. These marks of kindness and interest in the 
work have been of the greatest service, and have 
afforded much encouragement both to the Council and 
to the Editor. 

Signed on behalf of the Council,

THE study of the Modern Irish Language, which has 
received such an impetus in recent years, has been 
greatly hampered by the want of a convenient lexicon. 
Nothing but the urgent necessity that existed for 
such a lexicon could have induced me to abandon more 
congenial studies and devote my energies to the 
development and completion of the work so laudably 
undertaken by the Council of the Irish Texts Society. 
As I proceeded with the revision of the material supplied 
me the work grew imperceptibly under my hands. In 
preparing the work, I went through the whole of Peter 
O'Connell's MS. Dictionary, and also, though more 
rapidly, through the MS. Dictionary compiled by 
O'Naughton. The Gaelic Journal and the principal 
modern published texts were also laid under contribution, 
as well as several lists of words received from various 
parts of the country, Not the least valuable part of the 
work is what I was able to remember from the days of 
my childhood, the rich vocabulary employed by my 
father and mother and the inhabitants of my native 
Sliabh Luachra, the snatches of song, of story, of 
proverb, the allusions and rhymes and exclamations 
which mingled with their conversation, as well as the 
precise and accurate use of phrase and idiom which 
distinguished them. 

In spite of many defects, it is claimed for this work 
that it contains a larger number of words used in the 


living Irish language and in the more modern written 
compositions than any Irish Dictionary yet published; 
that it gives the various words fuller grammatical 
treatment ; that it explains them more in detail and with 
greater precision and accuracy; that it gives a fuller 
account of local usage and pronunciation ; that it treats 
more fully the more important words which form the 
basis of the main idioms that constitute the core of the 
language ; that it gives a greater number of peculiarly 
poetical expressions ; a fuller list of technical words and 
a more copious supply of examples drawn from the 
living speech of the people; that it has a more abundant 
list of references to modern standard works; that it 
deals more exhaustively and with fuller illustration with 
the various particles whose uses and functions are 
calculated to puzzle the student It is claimed that the 
book gives a fairly accurate explanation in English of 
the main stream of words, idioms and forms that 
constitute the Modern Irish Language. Absolute 
completeness, either in the list of words or in the 
idioms, is not claimed, the time and space limits and 
other circumstances affecting the production of the work 
rendering such completeness impossible. In the 
insertion of compound words, which form an important 
factor in the language, space had to be economized. 

It is obvious that in an unsettled language like Irish, 
which has not been cultivated to any extent since the 
use of print became general, many orthographical 
difficulties present themselves to the lexicographer. 
Complete uniformity of spelling is certainly a great 
desideratum. Indeed, it is impossible to conceive a 
flourishing literature in an age of printing like the 
present without a uniform orthography of some kind, 


The science of grammar becomes a mockery where there 
is not some show of uniformity in the written forms of 
the words, and students of the language are disheartened 
by an unsettled and ever varying orthography. The 
circumstance that the language has been growing apace, 
as all languages grow, for the last couple of hundred 
years, without in many parts of the country the check 
of a written or printed literature, has resulted in its 
forming itself into two or three more or less clearly 
defined dialects which differ from one another in several 
points, The Irish spoken in the Extreme North of 
Ireland differs from that spoken in Munster, and that 
spoken in Connaught differs from both. The Irish of 
South Connaught approaches that of Munster, while 
that of North Connaught resembles that of Ulster. As 
regards the orthography employed, perhaps the only 
item that will seem somewhat radical is the uniform use 
of pc, pp, pc, in preference to p^, pty p-o, respectively, 
but especially the use of pc for p$. On this point it 
may be observed that these sets of letter-combinations 
in general follow the same law, and that it is desirable 
to adopt a uniform system. In our books and dic- 
tionaries there is great confusion between the 
combinations pc and p^, and the time seemed to have 
come for writing uniformly one or the other. The 
question was, which should be selected. The selection 
of pc is only the natural lexicographical evolution. 
O'Naughton, the author of our earliest modern dic- 
tionary (finished 1727), writes pc for the most part, and 
devotes only a few pages to words beginning with p$. 
O'Brien (1767) states in his dictionary that pc and pg 
are absolutely identical, and that words spelled with pc 
will not be repeated under p. O'Reilly made much 


the same observation, while Peter O'Connell (1826), 
whose work is most laborious, systematic, and com- 
prehensive, writes pc in every case. Of the living 
authorities who were consulted on this question opinion 
was divided. I may mention that Dr. Standish Hayes 
OGrady, Professor Strachan, and Dr. Joyce, approved 
of the exclusive use of p c, while Father Peter O'Leary, 
Mr. Bergin, Mr. Lloyd, and others, favoured f 5. There 
can be no question, of course, that pg is far more 
common in modern manuscripts, and up to a recent 
date at least was more common in books. As regards 
the sound of the language used at the present day 
opinion also differs, some maintaining that the sound 
after p is 5, and others 'that it is c. I think that the 
sound is in many cases pc, and in most other cases 
approaches nearer to pc than to pg. It seems to me 
that in words like pce-dl, pceirh, pcilliri$, where pc is 
followed by a slender vowel, the p is more afiected than 
the c, the p becomes pti rather than c 5. This ph sound 
of p, I believe, makes many think that a g-sound and 
not a c-sound is heard. In words like pcoit, to my ear 
at least, the sound is c. With regard to plural forms 
like p.dipcr6e. which some now write -p&ipci.and pjic.Ar6e, 
which they write pp&CAi, only the longer form is given 
in these pages. That form is given as being the best 
established, though it is undoubtedly cumbrous and 
awkward to a degree. Both forms would have been 
given except that it seemed a needless waste of space to 
do so, and hence the exclusion of the shorter form is 
not to be regarded as prejudicing its claims. There can 
be no doubt that the tendency will always be in the 
direction of retrenching unsounded letters, and making 
the spelling square with the pronunciation. But the 


process must be gradual and, as it were, imperceptible. 
The dipthong e^ has been used throughout instead of 
en, I have followed Peter O'Connell in writing -iftadcc 
or --Afoedcc as the termination of abstract nouns, thus 
cf \oin4it) e-ACc, not c^ointngeAcc, though the verb is 
written cfomuigim. 

The diphthong eo and not eo is written throughout 
except in a few cases, and triphthongs are not in general 
accented. The diphthong QA is used in preference to 
10 in unaccented syllables, thus 6i^e<\nn not 6ijuoim 
It has been found convenient for lexicographical order 
to observe the c-^ot te c^ot law even in compounds, 
though there are some instances of departure from it, 
But it should be noted that the observance of this law 
is not intended to prejudice the pronunciation. Words 
like teit-pc6At, teit-Ge.Arm are largely but not universally 
pronounced as if written Le-c\t-f ce-dt and te^t-Ce^nn ; 
thus we say T>eif-'b.4tAC and not > oe^f~"beAU\c, etc. 
Though many hints regarding the pronunciation of 
words are scattered through the book, it was found 
impossible to treat the pronunciation of each word in a 
systematic manner, without unduly enlarging the work. 

The more important verbals are given a separate 
heading ; sometimes they have uses distinct from those 
of the corresponding verbs. The verbs are given under 
their first singular indicative, as this arrangement is 
generally adopted in modern vocabularies. The un- 
settled state of orthography of the language often 
necessitated the repetition of the same word under 
different forms, and recourse was had to phonetic 
spelling when the origin or etymology of the word was 

An effort has been made, as far as the limits of the 


work permitted, to give examples of the principal 
idioms that involve the prepositions and other important 
words, but it is obvious that there are many idioms 
depending on the collocation of words which can be 
learned only by practice. 

The treatment of local words, some of which are of 
very doubtful genuineness, was a matter of some 
anxiety. In some parts of the country certain English 
words have got an extraordinary twist, and in the 
mouths of Irish speakers pass for genuine Irish words. 
Moreover, words that are really Irish are sometimes 
very much corrupted locally, and the corrupted forms 
are of doubtful advantage to a lexicon. The local use 
of words, however, when properly ascertained, is of 
great assistance in determining their origin and 

A word may be said about modern loan words. 
They are practically all taken immediately from the 
English, though many are loan words even in English. 
Some have been introduced with scarcely any change 
of pronunci ition, but with a somewhat altered or 
extended meaning. Thus f cenrj6i|\ is from schemer, but 
is used in a peculiar way in Irish ; p o^c is from sort, but 
not identical in use with the English word. Many 
English words get an Irish terminal form as ctuiCA from 
crook, and the termination -11 of the verbal noun is 
often added to English verbs ^5 ceitroe^it, tending, 
and the like. Of forms like these, some have got a 
footing in the language, while others, as the one just 
quoted, must be regarded as barbarous. 

With regard to the general question of the insertion 
of loan words in a dictionary or their use in the spoken 
and written language, it is to be said that words that 


are established in the written language, being used by 
good authors, or words in everyday conversational use, 
should find a place in a dictionary, from whatever source 
they may be derived. The lexicographer may deplore 
the introduction of loan words, but he is bound to 
recognise their existence. Of course, words not well 
established or not widely used, have not the same claim 
to recognition. In the following pages I have in general 
given those loan words which have a footing in the 
spoken or written language, especially when they have 
acquired a new shade of meaning. In writing the 
language, words only recently borrowed and for which 
there are Irish equivalents, should be sparingly used. 
It is otherwise with words that 'have already a life of a 
couple of hundred years in the language. Every tongue 
borrows from other tongues, and it is a sign of health 
and vigour when a language can assimilate a crop of 
foreign words and reduce them to' subjection by the 
rigorous application of its own syntax and of its own 
inflexional forms. 

Want of space prevented my treating of the derivation 
of the bulk of the words in the dictionary, or of tracing 
their relationship to words in kindred tongues. It need 
scarcely be stated here that modern Irish is substantially 
the same language as Scotch Gaelic and as Manx, that 
it bears to the Welsh and Breton languages a kinship 
similar td that which exists between modern English 
and modern German, that it is a development of a 
language which was cognate to the earlier forms of the 
great family of languages spoken and written in modern 
Europe, that though its vocabulary has been consider- 
ably influenced by Latin within historic times, and by 
English within the last three centuries, it has preserved 


its own syntax and its own characteristic inflexional 
system practically untampered with even to this day. 
Its syntactical and inflexional systems have, indeed, 
been subject to a development similar to the develop- 
ment which takes place in the successive stages of every 
living and cultivated speech, but neither its syntax nor 
its inflexional system has been influenced to any great 
extent by neighbour tongues. 

I owe a debt of gratitude to my friend, Mr. John J. 
O'Kelly, for the tireless energy which he devoted to 
the work from the outset. His extensive knowledge 
of the living language rendered his co-operation 
particularly valuable. 

My friend, Mr. J. H. Lloyd, looked over all the MS. 
and read the proofs carefully, and the work owes much 
to his extensive knowledge of local forms and his 
critical acumen. 

The following gentlemen, all of whom are well skilled 
in the living language, kindly looked over the proofs 
and noted local usages, etc. : Messrs. John J. O'Kelly, 
P. OShea (Glengarriff ), P. J. O'Shea (" Conan Maol ), 
J. C. Ward (Killybegs), J. Craig, J. Rogers (Barrow-in- 
Furness), T. Concannon, R. A. Foley, M. Breathnach, 
Messrs. J. J. Doyle and M, O'Malley looked over 8 
portion of the proofs. Special mention should be made 
of Mr. Richard Foley's keen interest in the work from 
the beginning, and of the zeal with which he sought 
out and recorded local usages. 

Among those who helped by supplying lists 01 
words I may mention Rev. M. M'Grath, St. Mary's, 
Rathmines ; Messrs. D. O'Callaghan (Aran), O'Donnell 
(Newport), O'Doherty (Cruit Island), R. A. Foley, John 
J. O'Kelly, J. C. Ward (Kiliybegs), Seamus O'Kelly, 


(Belfast), M. O'Brien ( Bally vourney), D. D. Murphy 
(Valentia), T. Hayes, P. O'Daly. Dr, J. P. Henry also 
took a great interest in the v>ork all through its progress, 
and furnished useful lists of local words. 

To Miss Eleanor Hull, Hon. Sec. of the Irish Texts 
Society, who took a keen personal interest in the work 
from the beginning, I am indebted for much sympathetic 
encouragement and many useful suggestions. 

I wish to record my appreciation of the kindness I 
received from Mr. J. J. MacSweeney and assistants of 
the Royal Irish Academy, Mr. Lyster and assistants of 
.the National Library of Ireland, Mr. De Burgh, Mr. 
Hall and assistants of Trinity College Library. 

The labour of seeing the work through the press was 
considerably lightened by the intelligence and efficiency 
displayed by the staff of Messrs. Sealy, Bryers and 

Although this work was laid on my shoulders quite 
unexpectedly, it is curious to recall that the production 
of an Irish Dictionary was one of the dreams of my 
boyhood. If the realization of that dream be not as 
splendid as the original conception, it is some compen- 
sation to reflect that the work, in spite of many 
imperfections, will be useful to thousands of students, 
and will help on the work of cultivating the rich and 
vigorous, but sadly neglected, language of the Gael.

v. tr. verb transitive. 

After nouns, the genitive singular and nominative plural are given ; 
after verbs (which are given in the 1st person singular, indicative mood), 
the verbal is given ; after adjectives, the dative singular feminine, which 
is also in general the same as the comparative and superlative, is given ; 
many adjectives, from the nature of the ease, are not used in the com- 
parative or superlative, but are nevertheless declined in the positive 
degree ; after compound nouns, in most cases, the genitive and plural 
are not given when they are identical with those of the terminal 
simple nouns. 

The general rule followed in setting down the inflectional termina- 
tion after the words is to repeat the last letter of the invariable portion 
of the word, thus bftonrr6ift, -6|t 4, -6i|ti'6e, signifies that the genitive 
case of b^onncottt is buontico-jiA, and its nominative plural is bftotiT)- 
roTftme ; where, however, the inflexional termination is purely an addi- 
tion to the noun, the last letter is generally not repeated, thus 
signifies that pAtA is the genitive case of - 



A (Aitm), the first letter of the

when they do not qualify nouns, 
as A hAoti, one, the number one ;

AOH 1341 ft, Aon tiAifi AtriAin, once, 
once upon a time ; Aft Aon, toge- 
ther; ITIA-JI Aon, along with, 
together with ; 5 AC Aon, every 
one. Aon is sometimes accented, 
and forms one word with the 
following nouns, as : tMomAft 
Afuon Aft Aon-pcoit, we both 
attended the same school ; com- 
JIAC Aon-pfi, single combat ; but 
it is not accented in phrases like 
ni hAon iriAiteAf -otnc beiu A^ 
CAirmu, there is no use in your 
talk; ni'l A^Am ACU Aon fCitL- 
1115 AtriAin, I have but a single 
shilling, and should then be 
regarded as a separate word. 
The accentuation of Aon takes 
place when emphasis is to be 
laid on the singleness, unity, or 
identity of the idea conveye'd by 
the following wordj thus, rn't 
Aon tDjii^ teif An "bpocAl -pAin, 
that word has no meaning ; but 
Aom-'bfii'jj if eATD AT;A teip ATI 
OA -pocAt, both words have one 
and the same meaning. In the 
first of these two sentences Aoti 
is not emphasised, and should 

( 34 ) AOtl 

not form one word with bfiij. 
If the word AtriAin follow in the 
sentence it sometimes takes the 
emphasis off Aon. Aon was in 
the 16th century, and is in 
modern times, often written eAn, 
and in compounds Aom becomes 
em. An objection to these 
forms is this, that frequently in 
poetry Aon has to be pronounced 
Aoir> (with broad n), which is a 
recognised sound of AO in Con. 
and U.; but the spelling eAn 
does not lend itsolf to that
