About: The Beathaisnéis Series comprises nine volumes of short Irish-language essays on the lives of important and not-so-important Irish-speaking men and women. There are over 1,700 people featured from 1560 to the present and we will revisit this excellent series to highlight other Irish speakers who have a connection to West Wicklow. The text of all 9 volumes has now been digitised and published as a fully-searchable database on the website Ainm.ie
