Irish Dialects and Irish-Speaking Districts
Three Lectures by
Brian Ó Cuív 1950
First published 1951
Dublin Institute for Advanced Studies 1993
The first two lectures in this book were delivered in March 1950 in Trinity College Dublin, and the third lecture was delivered at the colloquium of the School of Celtic Studies held in October, 1949, and has been included in this book to supplement the first two.
The lecturer’s aims were twofold – firstly to sketch briefly the historical background to the state of the Gaeltacht at that time, and secondly to illustrate some of the aspects of dialect study as applied to the Irish Language.
