Dictionary of Irish biography

Covers Irish men and women from the earliest times until 2001, providing biographies and a sense of their influence on Irish history, culture, and life. Simple keyword search from the homepage may be used or use the advanced search feature to search by occupation (including "saint"), date of birth or death, place of birth or death (by Irish counties), or religion. Biographies range from a few paragraphs to longer essays which will assess the individual's influence. Includes fictional characters, like Molly Malone, who have become immortalized in song, and some of the figures from Irish mythology who have become familiar through literature (Deirdre).
