NOTE: For convenience sake this online version has converted the old Irish letters used in the original text to the roman alphabet, and exchanged the lenited or dotted consonants to their equivalents in the latter, e.g. the lenited (or aspirated) dotted "c" has been altered to "ch", and the dotted "g" to "gh", etc. All the entries for men, women, and surnames, are complete in this version, but only the supporting text deemed requisite for an adequate understanding has been included. For the full account consult Sloinnte Gaedheal is Gall: Irish Names and Surnames by Rev. Patrick Woulfe, 1923.
In Popular Rhymes and Sayings of Ireland (first published in 1924) John J. Marshall examines the origin of a variety of rhymes and sayings that were at one time in vogue around different parts of the country, including those which he recalled from his own childhood in County Tyrone. Numerous riddles, games and charms are recounted, as well as the traditions of the ‘Wren Boys’ and Christmas Rhymers. Other chapters describe the war cries of prominent Irish septs and the names by which Ireland has been personified in literature over the centuries.
