Two letters written by Lord Kinalmeaky and addressed to his father, Richard Boyle earl of Cork, suggest how and when the Book of Lismore left its original home and ended up in Lismore. In the first, dated from Bandon 3 June 1642, Lord Kinalmeaky reports he captured the Mac Carthaigh Riabhach castle at Kilbrittain. Soon after, in another letter dated 25 June 1642, again from Bandon, he concludes with a postscript saying "I present your Lordship a Manuscript found at Kilbutten [Kilbrittain]", now commonly identified with the Book of Lismore.
