The present volume contains a collection of essays to honour the enormous contribution by Professor Pádraig A. Breatnach to learning in a diverse range of fields including Medieval Latin, Early Modern Irish, palaeography, literary history, eighteenth-century verse, and Modern Irish literature and language. The contributors engage with written material relating to Early, Medieval and Modern Irish as well as with oral traditions in Gaelic-speaking areas of Ireland, Scotland and the Isle of Man.

Cuimsíonn an t-ábhar féin foinsí scríofa na Gaeilge ón luathré anall go dtí an tréimhse chomhaimseartha chomh maith le foinsí béil Ghaeilge na hÉireann, na hAlban agus Oileán Mhanann.
