A Festschrift for Gearoid Mac Eoin

Edited by: Donall O Baoill, Donncha O HAodha, Nollaig O Muraile

This collection of essays honors one of Ireland's foremost Celticists, Gearoid Mac Eoin, who was appointed to the Chair of Old and Middle Irish and Celtic Philology at University College, Galway in 1966, where he spent the rest of his academic life. He was elected Dean of the Faculty of Celtic Studies on several occasions and became a member of the Royal Irish Academy in 1975. The festschrift contains contributions from numerous scholars, many of them Professor Mac Eoin's former students or colleagues. The contributions reflect the wide range of his scholarly interests - literary and linguistic - including all phases of the Irish language, Scottish Gaelic and the other Celtic languages, as well as Indo-European. [Please note: This book contains forty-one essays, the majority of which are written in English, although they contain excerpts in a variety of languages including Greek, Latin, Irish, Welsh, Scots Gaelic, German, and other Indo-European languages. Sixteen of the essays are written completely in Irish and two in German.]
