Scope and Contents

There are a number of documents contained in this bundle, which includes the following items that were also catalogued in previous historical records:
1. "Craobhsgaoileadh ... Geanalach cloinn hEochadha Muighe Finn". John O'Donovan appears to have made the note on the paper 'from an old paper manuscript in T.C.D'.
2. A poem headed "Maoldomhna ua Muirgeasain cct./Duanseanchus ui Eidirsgeoil as Saltar Chaisil".
3. Extract, possibly by John O'Donovan, from the Annals (of the Four Masters?). The extract begins abruptly, "Sioth do dheanamh do Bhrian mac Cinneide Mumhan sioth do dheanamh le Maolseachlain agus le Briam cead iompod Bhriain".
A poem by unknown scribe, which is headed, "Maoilin og Mac Bruaideagha". There is mention of the Dalcassian race.
Three papers sent by Whitley Stokes, Lincoln's Inn, London, on 2nd February 1859, aking the recipient of the package to give their views on the papers, which he apparently received from Germany.
