HENNESSY, William M. Ed. by.

The Annals of Loch Cé. A chronicle of Irish affairs from A.D. 1014 to A.D. 1590. Edited and with a translation by W.M. Hennessy. With folding coloured plate of the TCD Ms. Two volumes. Dublin: De Búrca, 2000. Third. pp. (1) lix, 653, (2) 689. Superb set bound in full buckram gilt and in presentation slipcase.

These Annals were compiled under the patronage of Brian MacDermott, Chief of Moylurg, who resided in his castle on an island in Lough Key, near Boyle, County Roscommon. They begin with the Battle of Clontarf and continue up to 1636 treating on the whole with Irish affairs, but have many entries of English, Scottish and continental events. They are a primary source for the history of North Connaught. The compilers were of that noted learned family of O’Duignans. The only original copy of these Annals known to exist is a small vellum manuscript which was presented to Trinity by Dr. Leland in 1766.
