We have here an extensive word-list of Donegal Irish in Dictionary format. This work was compiled by the editor in 1993/4 using an old MS DOS word processor, using original manuscript sources from folklore archives in University College, Dublin. The material was collected in the 1930s and 1940s, mainly by Seán Ó hEochaidh and Seán Mac Meanman. It covers a huge section of the Donegal Gaeltacht

This is believed to be the first Irish Language Dictionary to be produced exclusively by computer and probably the first to be produced directly and exclusively from primary manuscript sources without intervening paperwork of any kind! The process used was exclusively developed and copyrighted by the author. This dictionary includes meanings and definitions entirely in the Irish language.

This is a huge amount of fascinating folklore material written in the 1950's by Seán Ó Caoimh, a native of Cnoc na Faille, Cappaquin, to Seán Ó Súilleabháin of the Folklore Commission. Seán had before him the guide book for Irish folklorists written by Seán Ó Súilleabháin. I am very grateful to Prof. Séamas Ó Catháin and the Department of Folklore at University College, Dublin for permission to edit this manuscript. The Ó Caoimh family made a wonderful contribution to the record of our national folklore and linguistic heritage. Seán's brother, Séamas was the author of the book "An Sléibhteánach" Seán's sister, Máire Ní Chaoimh (Mrs Liam Bray) recorded a huge amount of valuable material on tape which is now preserved in the Library of Ring College.
