The Irish language has made a huge contribution to the English language as it’s spoken in Ireland and beyond. Micheál Ó Conghaile's 'Colourful Irish Phrases' is a small compendium of characteristic phrases that will alert the reader to the unmistakable difference between our native language and English. Even the most basic words are expressed so differently. Please in Irish is más é do thoil é (if it is your will), and thanks becomes go raibh maith agat (may you receive good). There are many phrases that when translated, word for word, they sound different, unusual and sometimes funny. But above all, they are rich and deeply rooted. Visitors to Ireland who want to get some notion of our native identity will find these phrases both instructive and revealing. Topics covered range across subjects as diverse as insults and put-downs, being human and the gift of the gab.

This is a very important contribution to Anglo-Irish lexicography and an excellent source of information on the English of Ireland Dictionaries. Now in paperback, this important work fills a long-felt void in the study of both Irish and English, by providing the first extensive compilation of Hiberno-English words, their meanings and etymologies. The legendary eloquence of the Irish is here shown to be the product of not one, but two languages. This applies equally to the spoken word as to the great landmarks of Anglo-Irish literary achievement. The author has collected, from written and (predominantly) oral sources, the most comprehensive evidence to date of the influence of Gaelic on modern spoken English in Ireland.

Hungry words

Hungry words

Hungry Words re-evaluates the authors and texts generally recognised as the 'canon' of Irish literature in the light of newly-identified famine discourse.

Hungry Words re-evaluates the authors and texts generally recognised as the 'canon' of Irish literature in the light of newly-identified famine discourse. Each essay focuses on the ways Irish authors with varying claims to canonical status affect and are affected by the literary discourse which emerged from the Great Famine. The anthology further illuminates not only the cultural impact of the famine, but the nature of the canon itself and the ideologies used to determine which authors and texts best represent Ireland's cultural identity. Although the Famine and its cultural aftermath in particular have become increasingly popular subjects of scholarly inquiry in the past few years, most studies of Famine literature have focused exclusively on works, authors, and cultural experiences outside the Irish literary mainstream. This oversight has perpetuated the longstanding myth that Irish authors and Irish culture have, for the most part, deliberately avoided engagements with the Famine. Hungry Words will seek to dispel this myth by tracing the Famine's influence on the works of mainstream authors from throughout the nineteenth and twentieth century. Through this approach we will demonstrate that, far from being ignored, the legacy of the Famine has been felt, explored, and transformed by each generation of Irish authors since the 1840s. Furthermore, by focusing on authors with differing claims to canomical status, the anthology as a whole will cast a critical eye on the ideologies of the Irish canon over the last 160 years.
