Irish Texts Society Volume 18: Duanaire Dháibhidh Uí Bhruadair
These three volumes, first published by the Society between 1910 and 1917, and edited by John C MacErlean, still form the most comprehensive edition of the works of this major late seventeenth-century poet. The Oxford Companion to Irish Literature has this to say of Ó Bruadair: 'Along with the poetry of Pádraigín Haicéad and the prose text Pairlement Chloinne Tomáis, his verse registers the chaos that engulfed Gaelic Ireland in the seventeenth century, recording its emotional impact on a highly charged sensibility'. Reassessments by various scholars of Ó Bruadair and his poems were published in the Society's Subsidiary Series (no. 11), edited by Pádraigín Riggs, in 2001.
