Annals written by John Clyn, a Franciscan friar of Kilkenny, between 1333 and 1349. The work, which runs from the birth of Christ to the author's own times up to 1349, is particularly notable for contemporary records of events in the area of the counties Tipperary and Kilkenny and is well-known for containing an account of the Black Death.
