abstract:

This is the seventh 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 An Calbhach Ruadh (son of Maghnas son of Conn Óg son of Conn) Ó Domhnaill and, in supplementary quatrains, of his wife, Eibhilín daughter of Báitéar Mac Suibhne. A quatrain in praise of Donnchadh (son of Niall son of Donnchadh) Mac Suibhne is also appended. An apologue likens An Calbhach’s struggle to that of Conn Céadchathach, forced at first to concede territory to hostile forces but ultimately triumphing and winning all. The poem was previously edited by Owen McKernan in Éigse in the 1940s. It is edited anew here from Stonyhurst College MS A II 20, with readings from National Library of Ireland MSS G 167 and G 299, Trinity College Dublin MS H 6. 7 (1411) and British Library MS Egerton 112, and with a full discussion of these and other extant witnesses.

abstract:

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.

abstract:

This is the fifth 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 Doimnic (son of Aodh Buidhe son of Conn) Ó Domhnaill and of his wife, Brighid, daughter of Éamann son of Eóghan Ó Máille. An apologue on the recognition of Cormac mac Airt through his just judgements supports the poet's argument that Doimnic too is recognised as one worthy to rule. The poem is edited here from Stonyhurst College MS A II 20, with readings from Trinity College Dublin MS H 6. 7 (1411), British Library MS Egerton 112 and Royal Irish Academy MS 23 O 73 (1382), and with a full discussion of these and other extant MS witnesses.

Chum Gofraidh Óg Mac an Bhaird an dán seo do Dhoimnic Ó Domhnaill (rainn 1-55) agus dá bhean, Brighid (rainn 56-63).

Tugtar ann ainm agus sloinne Dhoimnic (féach, mar shampla, Doimnic Ō Dom[h]naill, líne 23a), ainm a athar (féach mac áirmheach Aodha Buidhe, 22b) agus an t-eolas go bhfuil sé síolraithe ó cheannaire chlann Dálaigh (féach ua Ī Dhomhnaill, 54b). Seans maith gurb é a sheanathair an Conn in Ua … Cuin[n] chaoin ŌC[h]ruachān Lighean (21ab).

Déanaim amach gur mhac é Doimnic le hAodh Buidhe (floruit 1614) mac Cuinn (†1583) mhic an Chalbhaigh (†1566) mhic Mhaghnasa (†1563) Uí Dhomhnaill. Rud a thacaíonn go láidir leis seo ná go bhfuil a fhios againn ó fhoinse chomhaimseartha, Leabhar Mór na nGeinealach, go raibh deartháir darbh ainm Doimnic ag an Seaán (†c.1655) mac Aodha Buidhe (floruit 1614) mhic Cuinn (†1583) dar chum Gofraidh Óg dhá cheann de na dánta sa tsraith seo:1

Seaan <agus Doimnic dha> m<h>ac Aodha Buidhe m. Cuinn m. an Calbhaigh (Ó Muraíle 2003, iml. 1, §154.3).
