  • A short list which is fun to read is Irish slang in WhyGo Ireland.
    The BBC has a short page on Common Irish slang and there is also a list in TripAdvisor.

  • John Loftus and Terence Patrick Dolan’s Hiberno-English Archive is an outstanding reference. Entries offer vernacular and literary examples of Irish-English, along with notes on pronunciation, etymology and usage.

    The above website led me to this page of Cavanese.

    Another wonderful resource is CELT, the Corpus of Electronic Texts, which has a wealth of historical documents.
