Dr Edward Mac Lysaght / An Dr Éamonn Mac Giolla Iasachta
Author and Historian

The amount of Edward Mac Lysaght’s published work is monumental. It spanned an active writing period of 71 years in the realms of fiction and academic work, from his first book of verse Irish Eclogues in 1915 to his final work on Irish family names in 1986. He wrote four books in Irish, fifteen in English. He edited sixty-one compilations of manuscript material for the Irish Manuscript Commission. He left a legacy of learning in its many facets to the people of Ireland, for which we as a nation are extremely grateful and proud.

 
Údar agus Staraí

Ag féachaint siar dúinn ar shaothar scríofa Éamoinn, cuireann méid agus éagsúlacht na leabhair a scríobh sé iontas orainn. Scríobh sé ceithre leabhair i nGaeilge agus 15 i mBéarla. Chuir sé eagar ar 61 cnuasachtaí don Choimisiún Lamhhscribhinní.

Bhí eolas beacht aige ar Ghaeilge, Béarla, Fraincís agus Laidin. Tá muintir na hÉireann faoi chomaoin ag a scoláireacht agus a cheannródaíocht.
