There is a long history of Irish dictionaries trying to capture the essential features of our native language. People travelling on the road from Dublin to Cork, or the other way around, used to spy the Rock of Cashel standing majestically on its own overlooking the boring flat fields of Tipperary. It is, and was, a tourist attraction where buses stop on their way to the next restaurant. Mutters are made about the Kings of Munster and other romantic guff, but it is probably never explained that it was in this high rock that the first dictionary of Irish was compiled over a thousand years ago under the tutelage of Cormac ? Cuileannain, certainly King of Munster.
