Drawing on the resources of a recently-established Hiberno-English website hosted by UCD, this new edition of A Dictionary of Hiberno-English has been extensively revised and updated. Of the first edition: ""Terry Dolan's A Dictionary of Hiberno-English... is a pioneering work of scholarship which ascertains the nature of English as it is spoken and written in Ireland. I see it as one of the foundation stones of a new civic culture in the island."" -Tom Paulin, The Guardian. ""Professor Dolan's excellent dictionary, where you find such gems as 'hallion' and 'at the heel of the hunt' sitting comfortably with the Irish and English origins of much of our speech, is a significant contribution."" - Owen Kelly, Irish News.
