Welsh-Irish Dictionary

Welsh-Irish Dictionary

The fruit of 30 years of study, Joseph Mitchell's Geiriadur Cymraeg-Gwyddeleg is the first of its kind.

It presents a wealth of vocabulary, expression and grammar with a broad scope and wide range of sources, both colloquial and literary.

The dictionary is an ideal study aid for Welsh speaking students of Irish, whether in school, university or learning independently. It will also be of use to Irish speakers learning Welsh.

This work represents a precise study of word and phrase in context, is compiled clearly and well annotated. Dr Diarmuid Johnson worked as consultative editor for the project.
