    Irish Dictionary.org — Open Source Language resource

    Eoin from www.irishdictionary.org works hard to bring Irish language resources to as many people as possible, for free.

    His English Irish dictionary online is a great example of this.

    It's a wikidictionary - created by submissions from its users. The dictionary has over 1,500 entries, and it's growing every day. You can also download a pdf containing all the dictionary entries.

    Eoin's aim is to have a simple, accessible dictionary with fast search. You can search in Irish and in English. Eoin himself is the first to admit his dictionary isn't perfect - but it's better to have something than nothing.

    Eoin's approach and goals can be summed up in two old Irish proverbs:

    Tús maith, leath na hoibre - A good start is half the work

    and

    Trí na chéile a thógtar na cáisléain
    - In our togetherness, castles are built.

    Is fearr dhá theanga ná ceann amháin…

    Re: Irish Dictionary.org — Open Source Language resource

    Hi, Michelle.

    I tried to go to www.irishdictionary.org, but got a message that the domain name may be for sale....

    Is this something that has to be accessed through wiki's site?  It seems to be distinct from www.irishdictionary.ie which I use quite a bit.  Could you please clarify the URL for this dictionary?

    Thanks.

    Dale D
