In this book, Tony Birtill tells the fascinating story of the Irish language in Liverpool over the past 200 years and examines the Irish language vocabulary and speech patterns still in use in present-day Liverpool. It provides evidence of the large number of Irish speakers in Liverpool in the 19th century, explores the attitude of both Catholic and Protestant churchmen towards Irish, and the factors behind the decline of the language under British administration in Ireland in the 19th century.
This revised and updated edition includes additional material on the Irish language in America, and contemporary attitudes towards Irish on Merseyside.
