The Irish Dictionary
This selection from the Irish Dictionary contains English words and phrases, followed by Irish words and phrases: the translations are included.
The Irish language does not use the letters V, W, X, Y or Z, so we finish a look at the Dictionary with a double helping of English-Irish words beginning V, W, Y.
This is another in a series covering extracts from the entire dictionary.
