Book of Leinster

One of the three great collections of Old Irish poems , tales , histories , and genealogies of kings and saints.

Housed in the Library of Trinity College , Dublin , the “Book of Leinster” was compiled or transcribed by a bishop of Kildare at the behest of Dermot MacMurroughs tutor in the mid twelfth century.

Another of Ireland hidden gems to discover on an Ireland tours….hopefully with Ireland Luxury Tours…..
