Would anyone have a recommendation for a good Irish-English dictionary? I'm not looking for a little guide to slip in my pocket--I'm hoping to find a thick, hefty tome. Thanks.

The standard one we often mention here is - Foclóir Gaeilge-Béarla compiled by Niall Ó Dónaill and published by An Gúm - ISBN 978 1 85791 037 7 - but you can also look it up on the Teanglann.ie website, where you can also click on the grammar and pronunciation that goes with the vocabulary and access more additional information about Irish usage.

Seconding what franc said, plus there's a companion volume for English to Irish: "English-Irish Dictionary" by De Bhaldraithe. Both are generally available at Amazon. There's also a more condensed version of FGB called Gearrfhoclóit Gaeilge-Béarla which can be handy when traveling.

Thank you for the suggestion.

They are all here anyway:

- Ó Dónaill's Irish-English dictionary
- De Bhaldraithe English-Irish dictionary

and the new (with no paper version yet) Eng-Irish dictionary.

For the Irish-English side, there's also Dinneen's dictionary (old spelling and old script), paper version or online version here:
