Examples 1 through 8 come from transcriptions of tales told by Paddy Sherlock, a speaker of Hiberno-English who lived in County Clare, an area in which Irish-English bilingualism was common in the nineteenth century. It is not clear whether the storyteller himself was bilingual, but Ó Duilearga ( 1962) notes that Sherlock's grandfather told some of the same tales in Irish.
