Breatnach, Liam, Córus bésgnai: an Old Irish law tract on the church and society, Early Irish Law Series 7, Dublin: School of Celtic Studies, DIAS, 2017. xii + 346 pp.  
Córus bésgnai, a component tract of the Old Irish law text Senchas Már, is an important source text for the Church in early mediaeval Ireland. This book consists of annotated editions and translations of the Old Irish text as well as the later mediaeval glosses and commentaries. It should be of use to those interested not only in early mediaeval Ireland, but also in the early mediaeval Western Church.

This Festschrift contribution comprises the first edition, translation and detailed discussion of Senchas Gall Átha Clíath (‘History of the Foreigners of Dublin’), a late Middle Irish (twelfth-century) poem on the conversion of the people of Dublin to Christianity. Anachronistically, the conversion is attributed to St Patrick, and the poem is discussed in the context of the production of local hagiography and anachronistic charter material in twelfth-century Ireland and Britain in response to Canterbury’s claims to ecclesiastical hegemony. Introduction and source analysis by Elizabeth Boyle; edition, translation and textual notes by Liam Breatnach.
