William Bedell’s translation of the Old Testament was first published in 1685. Translated by Bedell (1571-1642), Bishop of Kilmore, with the assistance of Murtagh King and Dennis O’Sheridan, it was not published until some 40 years after Bedell’s death, and 83 years after the first edition of the New Testament in Irish (first published by William O’Domhnuill, in 1602).
