Eiléan Ní Chuilleanáin’s poem Gloss/Clós/Glas explores the
sound and meaning of three interconnected English and Irish words. Her
wonderfully creative word-play is celebrated in this special episode of
Spreading the Words.
‘Spreading the Words’ is a series on the histories of Irish words from literature and everyday life written by Sharon Arbuthnot and Máire Ní Mhaonaigh and produced in association with the book A History of Ireland in 100 Words and the electronic Dictionary of the Irish Language.
