The Irish annals; their genesis, evolution and history.


The Irish annals; their genesis, evolution and history.

Mc Carthy, Daniel P.

Four Courts Press


416 pages




As in many places, the practice of keeping chronicles arrived in Ireland with Christianity, and those that over a long period contain an entry for each year during most of their range are called annalistic chronicles, or annals. McCarthy (emeritus, Trinity College Dublin) examines and documents the process of their initiation, development, and role, both as a group and as individual records. Distributed in the US by ISBS.
