Rediscovering Irish heritage through words

From útluighe (outlaw) to crottach (curlew), the Electronic Dictionary of the Irish Language presents a study by researchers from Cambridge and Queen’s University (Belfast) of 1,000 years of medieval Irish words and their meanings, a number of which were lost. The freely-available dictionary has enabled people to discover, explore and celebrate the people who spoke the words, increased pride in linguistic and cultural Irish heritage, and enriched the content of primary and secondary school curricula in Belfast and across Ireland.
