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.
