Irish Texts Society Volume 16: Life of St. Declan of Ardmore and Life of Saint Mochuda of Lismore
These vernacular Lives of saints, connected with two of the historically most important Waterford churches, were edited by one of the most eminent historians ever produced by that county. Otherwise well known for his History of the Diocese of Lismore and Waterford and his Placenames of the Déise, Power applied his vast knowledge of Waterford's local history to his edition of the two saints's Lives. While the Latin Lives of the two saints have since been edited by Charles Plummer, who also edited the vernacular Life of Mochuda, Power's edition is still of value. As Brian Ó Cuív pointed out, it also marked a 'welcome extension' of the range of material being published by the Society.
