Citing biographies in ainm.ie

Below is a general guide on how to cite particular biographies on ainm.ie in academic references. The following information should be included:

  • Author(s): Note that Diarmuid Breathnach and Máire Ní Mhurchú are the authors unless otherwise specified at the bottom of the biography.
  • Title of the biography: e.g. ‘Ó Droighneáin, Micheál (1889–1964)’.
  • Name of the site: ainm.ie: An Bunachar Náisiúnta Beathaisnéisí Gaeilge.

It is not advisable to include a year of publication as ainm.ie is an online encyclopedia and corrections and updates are ongoing. In addition, editorial adjustments have been made to the biographies that appear online. As a result, passages in a particular biography are not necessarily identical to the original text that appears in the book series Beathaisnéis.
