It is meant as a catalyst for those willing to seek out further terms and insights from older lore-keepers in the Gaeltacht. In no way is it a comprehensive collection of such words, but rather a humble first step; a gesture of
encouragement for others who may wish to dive deeper into this rich realm of linguistic insight. It is illustrated with the works of 29 artists who responded to the words.

Also included are articles by, poet, Annmarie Ní Churreáin, writer, Tadhg Mac Eoghain; and some poetry by Dairena Ní Chinnéide.

Manchán Magan is a renowned writer and documentary-maker. His books include Thirty-Two Words For Field, Listen to the Land Speak, Tree Dogs, Banshee Fingers and Other Words For Nature, and Wolf-Men and Water Hounds.

He has made dozens of documentaries on issues of world culture for TG4, RTÉ, and the Travel Channel.
