By this I mean dictionaries that use only dialectal words, not the official standard (in case anyone's confused). I already have the two huge standard Irish dictionaries, so I was just curious about any for the three major dialects.
You might like: 'Foclóir Gaeḋilge agus Béarla' Irish-English Dictionary by Patrick S.Dinneen M.A.
ISBN 1 870 16600 0
First published in 1927, reprinted in '34, '41, '45, '47, '53, '65, '75, & '79.
It was reset in a larger type, by magnifying the whole page photographically in 1996.
It is for 99.99%, a photographic reproduction of the 1927 version, with minor additions.
Since it dates back to the time that the Munster dialect was considered the de facto standard, this then is essentially a munster dialect dictionary.
The price in 1927 was twelve shillings and sixpence, 5/8 of £1 English.
You will now need to pay about 50 times that amount to obtain this STILL IN PRINT version from the Irish Texts Society.
Though it is a purely photographic reproduction of a good copy, it is nevertheless subject imperfections in the process, yet on the whole, it is well readable with extremely few illegibilities which cannot be interpolated. I thoroughly recommend it.
