Catechism into conformity with the new Canon Law.
When the first edition of this book was published in 1919, Canon O'Leary, beanàcht Dé len' anam, wrote as follows to the Editor:—
Ṫáinig an Teagasg Críosdaíġe. Tá sé go h-áluinn ar fad! Níl aon leaṫsgéal ag aoinne, óg ná aosta, anois, ċun ḃeiṫ ġá leogaint air ná féadfaḋ sé an't-eolus ceart a ḃeiṫ aige ar fírinniḃ an ċreidiṁ.
The hope expressed in the preface to the first edition, and repeated in this, that An Teagasc Crisdy may be a help in teaching the Catechism in Irish to thousands of children and adults has been fully realised.
