About this font family
Doire is a rectified monowidth font based on the face used on the old Royal Gaelic manual typewriter.
Doire was first digitized in 1993 by Michael Everson and originally used the MacGaelic character set on the Macintosh platform, and ISO/IEC 8859-14 on the PC.

In 2010 Doire version 3.0.3 was released to correct some naming errors. More…
