Subject: RE: Lyr Add: Beir Mo Dhúthracht
yup, have O Domhnail & Bhaldraithe as well as Gearrfhocloir Gaeilge-Bearla (An Roinn Oideachais) published by Rialtas na hEireann 1981 and which appears to be a medium sized dictionary somewhat between the big O'Domhnail and the student Focloir Scoile version (which is the Focloir Phoca only with big print and which, alas, ochon, i heard has been discontinued).

Looking forward to Dineen. I love word histories & etymologies.

Wow, Joe Offer is on his toes, eh?

Thank you and him again.

(And I hope you did not mean to call me "Meán" - I can ramble on but really .... :-)

With regard Beir mo Dhuthracht, I have also found myself absentmindedly making up new verses applicable to my own stomping grounds.
