Quick Overview

Reference: E.2.2. Tomás de Bhaldraithe was an Irish language scholar and lexicographer born Thomas MacDonagh Waldron in Limerick. 1945 (revised ed. 1966; repr. 1975, 2009)

Tomás de Bhaldraithe was an Irish language scholar and lexicographer born Thomas MacDonagh Waldron in Limerick. He is best known for his English-Irish Dictionary, published in 1959.

In some ways Tomás feels that he came to the relocation of permanent emigration a bit late in life, something that has made adjustment to the realities of some aspects of modern Australian culture difficult. Nonetheless, the Sydney Irish community is lucky to have among them a truly modern Irishman, a linguist steeped in the beauty and dignity of Ireland as expressed through its native language and historical experience and someone who fully appreciates the complexity and reality of an Ireland made up of different cultural attachments and ways of looking at the world.

Tomás welcomes that diversity and dismisses any too narrow definition of what it is to be Irish:
