Edited by Diarmuid Ó Murchadha, 2009. Lige Guill is the last to be edited of a number of Fenian poems brought together by the compiler of the Book of Leinster. Described by the editor as a ‘somewhat bloodthirsty literary work’, the poem nonetheless represents an important and welcome addition to the corpus of edited Fianaigecht texts, not least because of its large onomastic content. Diarmuid Ó Murchadha is an authority on Irish personal and place names, and in this edition he has used his vast experience of dealing with often perplexing onomastic problems to the full.
