This project was created for the ATypI conference held in Dublin 2010. The theme was ‘The Word’ where we had to focus on an aspect of the Irish language. I chose to explore how the invasion of the Vikings in Ireland resulted in words being adopted into the Irish language. I chose to illustrate this through an arrivals and departures board. The departures boards shows the Old Norse word and the arrivals board shows how the word evolved into the Irish word.
