Irish Dictionary Online is a project by Diarmuid O'Dochartaigh from Carndonagh, Co. Donegal.
"It started in 2001 when I was online looking for the Irish word for wine for a wine bottle label design I was working on and realized that there was no searchable database of Irish terms on the Internet at that time. I did eventually find the Irish word for wine 'fion' but spent the next 2 years researching and assembling a database of Irish words and their English translations along with real world usage examples."
After the dictionary was completed and put online in 2003, 750 Irish verbs were conjugated into their various tenses, translated into English and added to the site.
In 2020 work was done to make the site usable on mobile phones and several new words and verbs were added, and some typos fixed. The milestone of 800 Irish verbs was reached on January 25th 2021 and the output screens for both verbs and word definitions were updated and restyled for better readability.
Work is underway to add an Irish Theaurus to this service. The data entry has been completed and the next step is to add the ability to reference the thesaurus.
