Codices Hibernenses Eximii II: Book of Ballymote looks afresh at some of the questions relating to the background and contents of the Book of Ballymote, one of the most extensive and most lavishly illuminated Irish manuscripts we have from the Late Middle Ages. The manuscript contains a vast array of prose and verse texts in Irish, including a copy of the imposing Leabhar Gabhála Éireann—the origin legend of the Irish, and a very small amount of material in Latin. The book, which is the second in the Royal Irish Academy’s Codices Hibernenses Eximii series, presents revised versions of contributions to a conference on the manuscript by Elizabeth Boyle, Bernadette Cunningham, Elizabeth Duncan, Raymond Gillespie, Deborah Hayden, Uáitéar Mac Gearailt, Máire Ní Mhaonaigh, Donnchadh Ó Corráin, Pádraig Ó Macháin, Nollaig Ó Muraíle, Ruairí Ó hUiginn, Karen Ralph.
