Irish Texts Society Volume 17: Amhráin Chearbhalláin
This is the only volume edited for the Society by Tomás Ó Máille, former holder of the chair of Irish at University College Galway. It is also a unique volume in another respect, representing the only departure from the Society's first General Rule which requires that all texts be accompanied by an English translation. Of all the authors whose works were published by the Society, Carolan, who was a harper as well as a poet, is arguably the best known, largely because of his musical compositions. This volume has been chosen as the subject of the Society's annual seminar for 2006, held in conjunction with the Departments of Irish at UCC.
