I mBéal an Bháis :

the great famine & the language shift in nineteenth-century Ireland /
Gearóid Ó Tuathaigh.
Main Creator: Ó Tuathaigh, Gearóid
Contributors: Ireland's Great Hunger Museum.
Summary:Perhaps the most fundamental cultural change in modern Irish history was the shift from Irish to English as the dominant vernacular of the people. While this change took place over an extended period of time, the demographic and social impact of the Great Famine of the mid-nineteenth century was critical. This study examines closely the role of the Great Famine in the complex drama of linguistic transformation in modern Ireland. --Page [4] of cover.
