Watson, Seosamh. ‘Filíocht Shéamais Daill Mhic Cuarta – Nótaí Teanga (“Linguistic Notes on Séamas Dall Mac Cuarta’s Poetry”).’, Eighteenth-century Ireland/Iris an dá chultúr, Vol. 6 (1991), pp 77-92.

This article, which is in Irish, analyses the rich assonantal rhymes in the published verse of the Co. Meath poet Séamas Mac Cuarta ‘the Blind’ (c.1650-1733), to demonstrate how a study of such rhymes can provide information on the variety of Irish spoken in a particular locality during the poet’s lifetime.
