      IRISH LOCAL NAMES EXPLAINED - Vocabulary of Irish Root Words

      By P. W. JOYCE, LL.D., M.R.I.A.

      This volume is a key that will help to open many locks. It contains a vocabulary of the root words from which Irish place names are most generally formed. It also contains a considerable selection of those names that are best known through the country, and which best exemplify the use of the root words. By the aid of the roots and examples it will be easy to discover the proper forms and meanings of hundreds of place names not mentioned in the following pages. Now that an active interest is being taken in the native and correct forms of our place names, this little book cannot fail to be of practical use. Should more exhaustive information on the subject be desired, it will be found in The Origin and History of Irish Names of Places by the same author.
