Manuscript online: a Latin-English-Irish dictionary

Around 1743, the library paid £20 for this dictionary which links Latin, English, and Irish (Gaelic). It had been started by the Revd Francis Walsh of Dublin and was completed by Tadhg Ó Neachtain (c.1670 – c.1752), a well-known Irish scholar of his day who based himself in Dublin and became a focus for the study of Irish there in the eighteenth century.

It is now available to view on Irish Script on Screen (ISOS) as a digital resource at this URL.

We are grateful to ISOS for digitising and making accessible our unique Irish manuscripts. This project is ongoing and other manuscripts can be seen here
