Welcome to Foras na Gaeilge's New English-Irish Dictionary, launched on 24 January 2013. The dictionary is available free of charge, and has been adapted to work both on desktop computers and on mobile devices.
Our aim is to provide comprehensive coverage for every entry, illustrated with examples to give context to the Irish equivalents. As well as translations for the English content, the dictionary also contains sound files and grammatical information.
The dictionary is being published on a phased basis, and the full content won’t be online until end-2014. The entries published in January 2013 consist of approximately 30% of the eventual content, however this range covers approximately 80% of general English usage. Enlarged and enhanced versions of the dictionary will be published online at regular intervals during 2013 and 2014. Once all of the dictionary material has been published online at the end of 2014, work will begin on the preparation of a printed edition in 2015.
We welcome feedback from the public – please feel free to send your comments to us at email@example.com. If the feedback refers to a specific entry, please ensure you give the relevant headword and/or sense. We also advise users to refer to our FAQ pages as there may be pertinent information there relating to your feedback.
