This article explores the interrelation of the synthetic and analytic verbal forms of modern Irish. The theoretical framework is that of the Minimalist Program of the 1990s, which relies heavily on the existence of functional categories like Tense and Agreement. The analysis utilizes the notion that pronominals may be either covert or overt, and that there is an important distinction between weak and strong pronominal forms. The main focus is on Irish, with the discussion covering a broad range of dialectal material. Examples are frequently drawn from a number of other languages in order to underline the universal nature of the conclusions drawn.
