Garry Bannister (1953 – ) travelled to Russia at the end of the 1970s where he helped to establish the first department of Modern Irish at Moscow State University. He has devoted many years to studying the writings of Thomás Ó Criomhthain, the literary works of Pádraic Ó Conaire and to the development of modern Irish literature in the first half of the 20th century. Amongst his many publications he has to his name a number of popular dictionaries, most recently the first mini-thesaurus for Irish speakers Teasáras Gearr Gailge Béarla and the now very popular Irish learner’s dictionary Foclóir Foghlaimeara.
