BookLovingLady It says: "List of great contributions made by Irish authors to the language of their ancestors". Now, correct me if I'm wrong, but Antoine de Saint-Exupéry (#105), Günter Grass (#18,) Aesop (#46) and Homer (#66) were not Irish, as far as I know...
Alex Hijmans (#57) is Dutch, lived in Galway for a while, wrote in Irish and translated books into Irish. Still, he's not Irish, like the description says he should be in order to appear on this list...

BookLovingLady @John
I noticed you've changed the description of the Listopia since my previous comment.


message 3: by John (new)

John @John, pedantry aside, this is a great list and a useful resource. Thanks for creating it. AND for having translations into Irish on it.


message 4: by Davis (new)

Davis Personally, I disagree with including translations, either into or from Irish, on this list. Why not have a list that promotes native Irish literature that was written originally in Irish? A language won't survive on translations alone, and those already get more then enough hype among the Gaelo-sphere.

:-) Glad I'm not the only one.
