112 lth.
Oifigeach in Arm Shasana in Éirinn a bhí i Charles Vallancey. Caolseans gur airigh an gnáth léitheoir trácht air. Ach, dóibh siúd a bhíonn ag plé le stair chultúir, tá cáil air mar údar teoiricí místuama faoi fhréamhacha na Gaeilge: ‘he inaugurated the Phoenician Scytho-Celtic School of Irish philology’ bunaithe ar an ngaol a shamhlaigh sé a bheith idir an Ghaeilge agus teangacha na Cartaige san Afraic agus na nIndiach Rua i Meiriceá agus teangacha aduaine eile. Tugann an leabhar seo cuntas ar na teoiricí sin agus suíonn iad i gcomhthéacs dioscúrsa an ama.
Charles Vallancey was an officer in the English Army in Ireland. Its unlikely that most readers would have heard of him. But for those concerned with history  he is famous as an author with unusual opinions ‘he inaugurated the Phoenician Scytho-Celtic School of Irish philology’ concerning the roots of the Irish Language, which he thought was related to the languages of Cartage in Africa and the Red Indians in America and other languages. This book looks at his theory’s in the context of the time.
