Motherfoclóir

Motherfoclóir takes an irreverent, punfriendly and contemporary approach to the Irish language. The translations are expanded on and arranged into broad categories that allow for interesting connections and are sprinkled with anecdotes and observations about Irish and Ireland itself. The author includes stories about his own relationship with Irish, and how it fits in with the most important events in his life.
