Summary
  • Brewer's Dictionary of Irish Phrase and Fable is devoted exclusively to the history, culture, mythology and language of the island of Ireland. Like its parent volume (Brewer's Dictionary of Phrase and Fable), the 'Irish Brewer' covers a huge range of different subjects, and is particularly generous in its account of legend, superstition and folklore. It is generous also in its insights into the origins and history of words and phrases, and contains a remarkable array of expressions and allusions that the user might struggle to find in an 'ordinary' dictionary or encyclopedia of Ireland
  • Its many A to Z entries, from Aachen to Zozimus, include Celtic gods and goddesses, bards, beasts, literary allusions, proverbial sayings, idiomatic phrases and expressions, characters from Irish literature ancient and modern, resonant place-names, and individuals and events of 'iconic' stature in Irish history. A significant number of entries relate to contemporary Irish life and culture
