This site is currently in the final phase of being upgraded. Not everything may work as intended and in the interim, we are unable to offer you the previous, stable version of the website since we lack the storage capacity to keep both versions running on the server. It should not take long, however, before the final hurdles are overcome.

471 “The indications of place in the paragraph just quoted agree with a note in Buile Suibne (ed. O'Keeffe, Ir. T. Soc. xii. 32): ‘Snam Da En on the Shannon, which is now called Cluain Boirenn’. O’Donovan, who refers to this passage (Hy Many 5, FM i. 209) says that Clonburren is in the parish of Moore in the barony of Moycarn (Mag in Chairn) in the southern extremity of Roscommon. It is marked in his map of Hy Many a little south of Clonmacnoise, across the river.”
