SS6. This volume, which was prepared by Dr Diarmuid Ó Murchadha of the Locus Project in University College Cork, is unusual in that it does not relate to a previous publication by the Society. Instead, it responds to a long felt need to make more accessible to historians and other users one of the most important of the early annals of Ireland, which were originally published by Whitely Stokes in the journal Revue Celtique, vols 16-18, and reprinted by Llanerch Publishers in 1993. By providing complete indexes to Stokes’s edition, Dr Ó Murchadha, who is an authority on Irish family and placenames, rendered a signal service to Irish scholarship.
