Pádraig Ó Duinnín (1860-1934) was a Roman Catholic priest, lexicographer, historian and prominent Gaelic revivalist. Born in Rathmore, County Kerry, he became ordained as a priest in 1894. He would devote much of his life towards the study and preservation of the Irish language, becoming a leading figure of the Irish Texts Society, being responsible for the publishing of 17th-century Gaelic poetry by Aogan Ó Rathaille and Piaras Feiritéar and the creation of an Irish-English dictionary in 1904.
