Synopsis

A bibliographical dictionary covering over 19 centuries of Irish lives. The entries in this work range from Ollamh Fodhla, 600 years BC, through Jonathan Swift up until the mid-Victorian era with the death of Whitley Stokes in 1845. Distinguished Irishmen appear in every field of human endeavour including philosophers, theologians, historians, statesmen, physicians, writers, and scientists. Such people include St Patrick, Edmund Spenser, George Berkeley, Edmund Burke, Richard Brinsley Sheridan, George Canning, and Oliver Goldsmith. This work features 513 biographies using a wide range of source materials. It is arranged into six historical periods, each with an introducton. Within each period, the lives are presented chronologically within three disciplines - literary, political and ecclesiastical. In addition, the volumes are illustrated with a selection of portraits and views.
