Product description

From c.1510 Maghnus O Domhnaill (Manus O'Donnell) was a leading political figure in the north-west of Ireland. Between 1537 and 1555 he was chieftain of Tir Conaill.

The 'Life' is and extraordinary work, running to nearly 100,000 words of verse and prose, written, for the most part, in clear, elegant Irish.
