SS11. This publication focuses on the three-volume edition of Ó Bruadair’s poems edited for the Society by John C Mac Erlean (Main Series 11, 13, 18). Along with the poetry of Pádraigín Haicéad and the prose text Pairlement Chloinne Tomáis, the works of this major poet are said to reflect the chaos thatengulfed Gaelic Ireland in the seventeenth century. The six contributors to the volume, Liam Irwin, Bernadette Cunningham and Raymond Gillespie, Breandán Ó Conchúir, Liam P Ó Murchú and Margo Griffin-Wilson, represent a mix of historians and literary scholars. As pointed out by the editor, Pádraigín Riggs, their stimulating contributions serve to redress the long, and undeserved, neglect of Ó Bruadair’s work.
