Notes for editors: is a major academic project that contains over 1,700 biographies ranging from the year 1560 to today. The Irish-language biographies project has been in development since 2009 by Gaois, Fiontar & Scoil na Gaeilge DCU in association with Cló Iar-Chonnacht and Diarmuid Breathnach and Máire Ní Mhurchú, authors of the nine volumes of biographies published by An Clóchomhar between 1986 and 2007 under the title Beathaisnéis.

A panel of co-editors was established in 2013 by Cló Iar-Chonnacht with the goal of updating some of the older biographies and to write new ones. This work was done by Micheál Ó Conghaile, Lillis Ó Laoire and Éilís Ní Anluain.

The project is funded by the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, The Gaeltacht, Sport and Media with support from the National Lottery.
