A new web-page is created when you click any of these links so that they do not appear as contents of the Ricorso website. To return to the “Gateway”, please close the current link or use TAB+ALT to return without doing so.

So much Irish textual material is available on internet today that it seems to me a census, not a Gateway, “hub” or portal is now needed! When examining this page, please be sure to scroll down to the main listings which sit below the first visible links - being the ones that have recently grabbed my enthusiastic attention. [BS]
