Abstract

The book under review is the collection in honour of Gearóid Mac Eoin. This is not the first festschrift for the scholar; previous publications include Tristram (1990) and Tristram and Poppe (1999). The volume reflects the astonishing array of interests of Prof. Mac Eoin as a Celtic scholar and Irish language activist, including such topics as Early and Modern Irish etymological, paleographic and linguistic studies, onomastic research, Early Irish and Welsh learned tradition, Modern Irish writing, Celtic languages (Irish, Scottish Gaelic and Breton) in contemporary social political contexts, Celto-Scepticism, Indo-European linguistics, and many more.
