‘This long-awaited festschrift for Professor Gearóid Mac Eoin contains forty-one papers covering a wide range of linguistic and literary topics in the field of Celtic Studies … This is a wide-ranging and rewarding collection of essays, and a fitting tribute to Professor Mac Eoin’, Simon Rodway, Cambrian Medieval Studies (2016).

‘The number and variety of contributions fittingly reflect the breadth and significance of Mac Eoin’s work … the volume contains much that will be of interest to scholars of the Celtic languages and literatures from the medieval period to the modern day … its contents offer something for nearly everyone interested in the Irish languages from its earliest sources to the modern day, as well as several related areas of Celtic Studies’, Deborah Hayden, CSANA newsletter (2014).

‘This impressive collection of essays, forty-one contributions in all, in English, Irish and German, honours Professor Gearóid Mac Eoin, former holder of the Chair of Old and Middle Irish and Celtic Philology at what was then University College Galway … handsomely produced and will be essential reading for both scholars and students of the Celtic languages and their cultures’, Peadar Ó Muircheartaigh, Innes Review (2015).
