Dinneen's Dictionary or Foclóir
Titlepage (detail) of the 1927 edition

Fr Patrick S. Dinneen (1860-1934) had already published the Poems of Aodhagán Ó Rathaille for the Irish Texts Society (1900) and then the Poems of Eogan Rua Ó Suilleabháin (1901) for the Gaelic League and many other works when he began working on what was to be the basis of the larger work – the Pocket Irish-English Dictionary appeared in 1904. The much larger dictionary was published in 1927.

Further information about the history of the Dictionary, delivered by Noel O'Connell in 1984, can be read here.
