AN IRISH RURAL LIBRARY.
The following is a complete list of the works
in Irish or dealing with the Irish language
suitable for a rural library. It is likely, however,
that in many cases the funds at the disposal
of the library will not permit of the

a case we shall be glad to assist the library
authorities in making a selection:—
