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

From the reviews of the first edition:

The Guardian Tom Paulin 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.

Irish News Owen Kelly . . . 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.
