TitleAn Doctuir Seaghan Mac Enri Collection
DescriptionThe material in this collection relates almost exclusively to Seaghan Mac Enri's work on "A Handbook of Modern Irish" and other work.The collection is divided between the correspondence and drafts of his literary work. The correspondence with Peadar Ua Laoghaire covers points of grammar in Irish, and he seems to have played a role in proof-reader for the "Handbook of Modern Irish" and other work. Micheal Breathnach also helped in relation to Irish phraseology for the book, and was a friend of Dr. MacEnri from the time that they met in London.

The second part of the collection deals primarily with the literary efforts of Seaghan Mac Enri. Many of the pieces that appear as drafts and copies in this part of the collection, can be found as articles and pamphlets in Irish language newspapers such as "An Claidheamh Soluis", "Fainne an Lae", "An Cearnog" and "An Stoc". There is also a file of notes and correspondence relating to the "Handbook", as well as a hand-written draft with amendments of the "Handbook" itself.
