This Bibliography was compiled as a by-product of the work of the Locus Project, an ongoing collaboration, based in the Department of Early and Medieval Irish, University College Cork. The Locus project, in association with the Irish Texts Society, is currently publishing a new fascicular Historical Dictionary of Gaelic Placenames to replace Fr Edmund Hogan's Onomasticon Goedelicum (Dublin, 1910). During the process of excerpting from texts unknown to Fr Hogan or not yet available in printed editions at the time of the Onomasticon, record was also made of numerous articles on various aspects of placename study. These are noted at the end of the relevant entries in the Dictionary, but some years ago it was decided that those references should also be made available to researchers in a separate volume. This has now been brought to completion. In total, the Bibliography contains nearly 3,000 items with up to 8,000 entries in the index.
