|Title:||Some observations on the Dublin Annals of Inisfallen||Authors:||Ní Úrdail, Meidhbhín||Permanent link:||http://hdl.handle.net/10197/9078||Date:||Dec-2007||Online since:||2017-12-06T16:16:40Z||Abstract:||This article examines the compilation and transcription of the eighteenth-century source commonly known as the ‘Dublin Annals of Inisfallen’. It reviews, in particular, the work’s most substantial entries, i.e. those which concern the O’Briens and the history of Thomond in the medieval period, and briefly highlights the historical value of other longer entries relating to the twelfth, thirteenth and fourteenth centuries. The ‘Dublin Annals’ attests to the readiness with which scribes indulged in editorial intrusion, while it also offers insights into the factors which impinged upon textual transmission in the Modern Irish period.||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Royal Irish Academy||Journal:||Ériu||Volume:||57||Start page:||133||End page:||153||Copyright (published version):||2007 Royal Irish Academy||Keywords:||Scribes; Irish history; Genealogy; Irish culture; Irish studies; Mulches; Descendants; Swords; Manuscript studies; Celtic mythology||Other versions:||http://www.jstor.org/stable/20696355||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed||ISSN:||0332-0758||This item is made available under a Creative Commons License:||https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/3.0/ie/|
