(p. v) Acknowledgements

We gratefully acknowledge support from within Trinity College Dublin: the Provost’s Academic Development Fund for the costs of illustrations; the Trinity Foundation and Trust and the School of English for the cost of indexing. We were fortunate also in our professional indexer, Julitta Clancy, who compiled a necessarily intricate index for this large volume. Jacqueline Baker and Rachel Platt at Oxford University Press supported the project from its beginning and were tolerant of delays in the delivery date. We very much appreciated the anonymous peer reviews they commissioned, and the book benefited as a result.

We are grateful to Chanté Kinyon for her diligent picture research. James Little and Zosia Kuczyńska worked with exemplary diligence and painstaking care as our editorial interns on the project, and without them the book would have had many errors and taken a great deal more time. A great many people responded generously to our requests to use the illustrations that add so much to this book, and they are acknowledged at the appropriate places throughout the volume; however, a special mention must be given to Mairéad Delaney, the Abbey Theatre archivist, and Barry Houlihan of the James Hardiman Library in NUI Galway. Above all, we have to say thank you to our contributors who delivered such fine and original chapters, and put up with our editorial harrying with good grace. Any remaining mistakes or omissions are exclusively our responsibility. (p. vi)
