New volume of Seanchas Ard Mhacha launched

The latest volume of Seanchas Ard Mhacha was launched before Christmas by Kieran McConville in the Cardinal Tomás Ó Fiaich Library and Archive. He noted that it was the ‘golden jubilee’ 50th issue of the Journal and applauded the quality of the articles, Chronicle and reviews.

Members are in the process of receiving their copies of this Journal which includes articles on the placenames research of Seán MacAirt of Keady, the Celi Dé, deans in the 19th-century Maynooth College, the famine in Cooley, the attrition of the Gaelic lords of Ulster after 1600, libraries in 19th-century Armagh and the life and career of the author, John O’Connor.
