The two-volume edition of the Life of Aodh Ruadh by Lughaidh Ó Cléirigh, which was prepared for the Society by Paul Walsh (Main Series 42, Main Series 45) was chosen for discussion at the Society's annual seminar in 2001, held in conjunction with the Departments of Irish at University College Cork. One aim of the seminar was to mark the four-hundreth anniversary of the Battle of Kinsale. Another was to reopen debate on the historical quality and linguistic and literary nature of Ó Cléirigh's text, and the several contributions to the seminar, published in this volume, by Hiram Morgan, Mícheál Mac Craith, Damian Mac Manus, Marc Caball, Nollaig Ó Muraíle and Pádraig A. Breatnach, bear eloquent and innovative witness to its value as a source. Publisher territorial rights
