Irish Texts Society Subsidiary Series Volume 14: Cinnelae Amhlaoibh Uí Shúileabháin: Reassessments (Seminar Series)
The four-volume edition of the early nineteenth-century diary kept by Amhlaoibh Ó Súilleabháin of the town of Callan in Co. Kilkenny was originally edited for the Society by Michael McGrath (Main Series 30-33). The collection of papers in the present volume, edited by Liam P. Ó Murchú, reflects a recent renewal of interest in Amhlaoibh's diary, stimulated by the work of such scholars as Proinsias Ó Drisceoil and Breandán Ó Madagáin. Both of these are among the contributors, who also include Gearóid Ó Tuathaigh, Cathal Ó hÁinle, and Neil Buttimer. This volume should stimulate further interest in the writings of a man described by Neil Buttimer as 'an innovative, committed and prolific penman'.
