Abstract: Over four thousand Irish manuscripts are still in existence today and most of these were produced during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. When we consider the scribes who produced these handwritten books of Irish prose and poetry at that time, we know that the contribution of those based in Cork city and county features very prominently indeed, not least of course, because of the evidence provided by Professor Breandán Ó Conchúir in his pioneering study Scríobhaithe Chorcaí 1700-1850 (1982). That important book discusses over two hundred scribes who flourished between 1700 and 1850, and those associated with Carraig na bhFear feature particularly strongly.
