Compiled by Pádraig Ó Riain, 2009. R.A.S Macalister’s five-volume edition of Lebor Gabála Érenn, published by the Irish Texts Society (vols 34, 35, 39, 41, 44) has traditionally been regarded as both unsatisfactory and incomplete, not least because the editor was no longer alive to see the final volume through the press. It is no more than proper, therefore, that the Irish Texts Society should respond to a long-felt need by providing an Index of Names. The index of personal names is limited in character, being confined to names of primary persons, animals and some inanimate objects mentioned in the text, accompanied, wherever appropriate, by patronymics or metronymics, which are also indexed separately. Subject to the omission of such repeatedly cited names as Ére (Ireland), the section on placenames is designed to be complete.
