Mac Cárthaigh, Eoin, “Gofraidh Óg Mac an Bhaird cecinit: 6. Cia ler múineadh Maol Muire?”, Ériu 71 (2021): 117–148.
- journal article
This is the sixth in a series of editions of the poems of Gofraidh Óg (son of Gofraidh son of Brian) Mac an Bhaird, who flourished in the 1640s and 1650s. It is in praise of Maol Muire son of Toirdhealbhach Mac Suibhne and, in supplementary quatrains, of his wife, Gráinne daughter of Báitéar Mac Suibhne. The poet extols Maol Muire’s military prowess by asking rhetorically who trained him, but also lauds him for his performance in peacetime and for his resilience. The poem is edited here from Stonyhurst College MS A II 20, with readings from Trinity College Dublin MS H 6. 7 (1411) and a full discussion of these and other extant MS witnesses.
