Saothru na Gaeilge Scriofa i Suimh Uirbeacha na hEireann, 1700-1850

Edited by: Liam Mac Mathuna, Regina Ui Chollatain

This book is written in Gaelic. Proceedings of the first conference to focus on the cultivation of the Irish language in urban areas, which was held in the UCDHumanities Institute, 23-4 May 2013. Four papers examine the work of the ? Neachtain scholarly circle in Dublin in the early 18th century, ranging over topics as varied as the evidence for contact with Swift to the influence of Rabelais (Cathal ? H?inle, William J. Mahon, Vincent Morley and Lesa N? Mhunghaile). Proinsias ? Drisceoil draws on Pierre Bourdieu's theoretical framework to evaluate Irish/English interaction in Callan, Co. Kilkenny, while Neil Buttimer and Fionnt?n de Br?n analyze the impact of Irish in the public spheres of Cork and Belfast. Breand?n ? Madag?in and Nollaig ? Mura?le trace the fortunes of Irish west of the Shannon, in Limerick, Galway and Sligo. Liam Mac Math?na and Regina U? Chollat?in, organizers of the conferences and editors of the volume, contribute an introductory essay which situates the conference's theme within L?ann na Gaeilge, or Irish language studies, in general.
