Dolan, T. P. ‘The Manuscript of Jacob Poole’s Glossary of the Dialect of Forth and Bargy’, Eighteenth-century Ireland/Iris an dá chultúr, Vol. 2 (1987), pp 203-207.

This essay describes the manuscript of the glossary of words and phrases of the dialect of the baronies of Forth and Bargy in Co. Wexford compiled by Jacob Poole (1774-1827). Reference is also made to published editions of the work and to evidence of the survival, until quite recent times, of some of the pronunciations noted by Poole in the early nineteenth century.
