• The Annals of Loch Ce'

The annals of Loch Ce are a primary source of Irish History from AD 1014 to AD 1590.

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, Co. 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 College by Dr. Leland in 1766. 

We are delighted to be able to offer the Annals of Loch Ce in a wonderful two volume edition, presented in a very attractive presentation case. The set are full buckram gilt.
