Lorg na Leabhar

Is é atá san imleabhar Lorg na Leabhar cnuasach aistí as Gaeilge, as Gearmáinis, agus as Béarla. Tá an t-imleabhar in eagar ag an Dr Gordon Ó Riain, léachtóir le Gaeilge i Scoil na Gaeilge, an Bhéarla, agus na Cumarsáide, i bpáirt le comhghleacaithe ó Choláiste na hOllscoile, Baile Átha Cliath.

Cuimsíonn an t-ábhar féin foinsí scríofa na Gaeilge ón luathré anall go dtí an tréimhse chomhaimseartha chomh maith le foinsí béil Ghaeilge na hÉireann, na hAlban agus Oileán Mhanann. Réimse leathan ábhar atá sna haistí agus plé iontu ar chúrsaí filíochta, teanga agus fileolaíochta, mar aon le stair an oideachais, an damhsa in Éirinn roimh theacht na Normannach agus an Gorta Mór. Triúr is fiche a chuir aistí ar fáil in ómós don Ollamh Pádraig A. Breatnach. Scoláirí iad sin ó institiúidí thar lear agus in Éirinn. Ollscoil na hÉireann a chuir an t-imleabhar i gcló.


The volume Lorg na Leabhar contains a collection of essays in English, Irish, and German. It is co-edited by Dr Gordon Ó Riain, lecturer in Irish (Léann na Gaeilge) at the School of English, Irish, and Communication. The essays engage with written material relating to Early, Medieval and Modern Irish as well as with oral traditions in Gaelic-speaking areas of Ireland, Scotland and the Isle of Man.

The contributions cover a diverse variety of topics, ranging from cultural history, poetry, linguistics, and philology and includes essays on the history of education, dance in pre-Norman Ireland and the Great Famine. The contributions are by twenty-three scholars from institutions including Harvard University, University of Oxford, University of Cambridge, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and the Dublin Institute for Advanced Studies. The volume is published by the National University of Ireland and is co-edited with colleagues from University College Dublin to honour the contribution of Professor Pádraig A. Breatnach (Dublin Institute for Advanced Studies) to learning in a wide range of fields including Medieval Latin, Early Modern Irish, palaeography, literary history, eighteenth-century verse, and Modern Irish literature and language.
