MS 23 P 2 (The Book of Lecan)

Catalogue of Irish Manuscripts in The Royal Irish Academy


23 P 2

Book of Lecan

Early 15th cent. Vellum. 11 7/9 × 8⅜. Of the original ms. 311 leaves remain, nine of which are now known as T.C.D. H. 2. 17 (no. 1319), pp. 172-187, 192-3 (ff. 142-150, infra). In this catalogue the foliation printed in clarendon type is that of the Facsimile of the Book of Lecan published by the Irish Manuscripts Commission. To facilitate reference to the ms. original the various ms. numerations are given in every case in the following order:—(a) old foliation recto, upper outer corner. (References in these notes are to this numeration.) (b) late foliation, recto, centre of lower margin (as this coincides with Facs. foliation up to fo. 107 it is not given for ff. 1-107); (c) pagination. A pencilled pagination is ignored. (a) now runs 10-312 [recte 311], the number 288 being skipped in foliation; (b) 1-302, one leaf being omitted from the foliation after fo. 107, but error rectified by omission of the number 141 later; (c) 23-622 [recte 626], two leaves being omitted from the pagination after p. 378 (ff. 198, 199, infra). It is improbable that ff. 142-150 (the T.C.D. leaves) formed ff. 1-9 of foliator a. Pp. 1-22 of paginator c are merely binder's flyleaves. As a is a foliation of the year 1612 (see infra) it shows the number and sequence of the leaves at that date. Ff. 1-9 have since been lost. (a) , (b), (c) ignore the chasms occurring after ff. 52, 62, 141 (now partly supplied by the T.C.D. fragment, which is itself defective after fo. 150), 230, and the displacement of ff. 173-182 (catalogued here in their proper place, acc. to Facsimile). In 1612 the ms. contained 311 leaves. The note occurring fo. 311 vb derives from foliator a's incorrect figure, and was presumably written by a himself: "5 Octobr. 1612. The number of all the leaves in this book are three hundred and twelve leaves. He. Perse." This was probably Henry Perse or Piers (d. 1623), grantee and assignee of Tristernagh, Co. Westmeath. In 1686 the book was in the possession of Trinity College, Dublin. Its subsequent history—it is noted missing in 1702 in T.C.D. Cat. D. 1. 6—ending with its return to Ireland through the efforts of Colonel Vallancey, who persuaded the Abbé Kearney, Superior of the Irish College, Paris, to present it in 1787 to the Library of the Royal Irish Academy, is detailed by the Marquis MacSwiney of Mashanaglas, Notes on the History of the Book of Lecan, Proc. R.I.A., xxxviii, pp. 31-50. Ff. 142-150 are noted by Gwynn, Catalogue of Irish Manuscripts in Trinity College, Dublin, xv, as forming part of 1319 (Sebright gift) since 1688, Laving originally belonged to Llwyd.

According to O'Curry (Acad. Cat., p. 879) the ms. has always been known as Leabhar Mor Leacain, because of its having been compiled at Lecan, in the County of Sligo, the residence of Gilla Ísu Mór Mac Fir Bisig, chief of his name and hereditary poet and historian to Ó Dubda, chief of Tír Fiachrach (Tireragh) and Tír Amhalgaidh (Tirawley).

The principal scribe is Gilla Ísu Mac Fir Bisich, whose orait occurs frequently, e.g., fo. 41 rb: " Orait do Mac F(.)ir Bisich do scrib in lebarsa ina set oirida fine da ticfa na diaid co brath re lind (Ruaid)ri I Dubda [ob. A.U. 1417] do scribad he." fo. 147v: "Orait do Mac Fir Bisich do scrib in lebarsa in fagmar do marbad Mac Dondchaid [=Matthew, son of Taichlech, acc. to O'Curry, ob. 1417, Annals of Connacht]." fo. 169 ra: "Orait do Mac Fir Bisich do scrib so do fen da mac na diaid do deoin Dia in gemrad tar es Mic Donnchaid." fo. 202 vb: " Orait do Mac Fir Bisig do scrib in leabarsa do fein da mac gebe ga mbia gabad egnairc in te ro scrib." Marginal notes in red paint occur fo. 105 vb: "As mor maith an leabarsa ag Mac Fir Bisigh." fo. 162v: "Anocht aidchi Domnaigh tairnig dath do chur ar in leabarsa uili is mor cocad Condacht. Caecais on aidchi nocht co Lugnusnad. Mac F(.)ir Bisig scribsit." Gilla Ísu was helped by two students of his own, Adam Ó Cuirnín and Murchad Riabach Ó Cuindlis. fo. 30vb: "Adam Ó Cuirnín do sgrib do Gilla Isu Mac Fir Bhissigh .i. d'Ollamh O Fiachrach. Anno Domini. M°CCCC°XVIII°." fo. 107 rc: "Murchad Riabach O Cuindlis qui scribsit da aidi (in Laigsechus add. in marg.) bodesin .i. do Mac Fir Bisig in foghmar do marbad Mac Donnchaid." fo. 162 vb: "Murchad Riabach O Cuindlis do scrib so da aide diles .i. do Mac Fir Bisig ar mbennacht leis do thuilleadh." fo. 182 rb: "Murchad O Cuindlis qui scribsi[t]." According to these scribal notes Mac Fir Bisig, ollamh to Ó Dubda, chief of Uí Fiachrach, began his task of compiling the Book of Lecan before the death of Ruaidri [mac Domnaill] Uí Dubda, chief of Uí Fiachrach (ob. A.U. 1417), continuing his work in the autumn and winter of the same year, and possibly completing his transcription and the colouring of the whole by August, 1418. Ruaidri Ó Dubda was succeeded in the chieftainship by his brother, Tadg Riabach, according to F.M. sub anno 1417. A note in the hand of Peregrine O'Clery, loc. cit. (ms. original in R.I.A.), adds, "Re linn an Taidg sin do scríobhadh Leabhar Oiris Leacain". It is significant that, although Ó Cuirnín 's principal contribution (ff. 10-30) is dated 1418, it is left uncoloured. Did it reach Mac Fir Bisig's hands after August 1418 when the main compilation (including Ó Cuindlis's copy of Uraicept na nEces, ff. 151-162) had been completed?

The distribution of the three principal hands is as follows:—Gilla Ísu Mac Fir Bisich: ff. 31-79 v, 81-83 rb, l. 4, 93 r-150 v, 163 r-255 r, 264-311, and the nine leaves in T.C.D. (ff. 142-150, infra). Adam Ó Cuirnín: ff. 10-30 (ff. 18-30 possibly at different time from rest), 80, 83 rb, l. 5-85 rb, l. 9, 86r-92v, 131 rb, l. 13-131 rc, 133, 148 vb, l. 26 to end of col., 181 ra, l. 31 to end of col., 255 va-263 r, 311 v-312 v. Murchad Riabach Ó Cuindlis: 97 rd, ll. 9-43, 103 rb, ll. 5-18, 106 rc, l. 33-107 rd, 107 vc, l. 31-107 vd, l. 33, 108 rd, 140 ra, l. 16-140 rb, l. 12, 151r-162v, 165 rb, l. 18-165 rd, 182ra-182rb. It will be seen from this that Ó Cuirnín and Ó Cuindlis worked in close collaboration with their master, their only independent sections being ff. 10-30 and ff. 151-162. There is a considerable number of headings, additions (ff. 79 r, 79 v, 82 rb, 85 rb, 85 v, 192 v), and unimportant marginal jottings in later hands, e.g., fo. 22 r, "begins"; fo. 25 r, "here commences What was lost by teenhan (?)"; fo. 40 v, "the end of what was lost [but there is no possibility of this part of our ms. having been lost]." Owen Connellan (ff. 30 vb, 55 vb, 109 r, and back flyleaf), Charles O'Conor of Belanagare (ff. 31r, 99 rd, 123 v), Eugene O'Curry (fo. 72 r) have added to the marginal jottings, while various notes in Latin throughout (ff. 85 rb, 102 va, 202 v, 310 v, 312 v) are attributed by O'Curry, Acad. Cat., pp. 887-8, to Ussher. O'Curry identifies notes, ff. 33 ra marg., 184 ra, as Colonel Vallancey's hand. Signatures occurring among these scribblings are: fo. 68rb, "Bridg . . Fitz . . . [possibly a relative of Sir John Fitzgerald, for whom see MacSwiney, Proc. R.I.A., xxxviii, pp. 33, 38]"; fo. 108 v, "Mageocan"; fo. 172 rb, " Semus Magheghan [perhaps the Abbé mac Geoghegan, who wrote table of contents on back flyleaves]" fo. 303 r, "Tadg Ruad mac Fhir Bisig."

The ms. is in good condition, with the exception of some leaves stained by age and exposure, but the vellum varies considerably in quality (cf. ff. 10-30 with the ff. 31 ff.), and allows the ink to sink through in places. There are numerous repairs made before the ms. was written. The edges have suffered at the hands of a binder, late marginal notes being cut away. The writing is generally arranged in double column, 51 lines to a page. The ruling, guided by marginal prickings, is partly by dry point, partly in brown. The following columns are blank:—ff. 30Vb m., 42vb i., 68 va i., 68 vb, 92va i., 92 vb, 99rd i, 102 rd, 109 rb i., 109 rc-d, 111vd m., 136 rb m., 162 vb m., 172 rb i., 172 v, 176 vb i., 192 vb i., 211 vb i, 212 ra (top half), 213 vb, 263 rb m., 263 v, 266 vb m., 305 vb. The ms. is ornamented by the application of crude but strikingly vivid vermilion and chrome paint to the capitals. The absence of colour from ff. 10-42, 80, 82-92, 131 rb, 133, 181 ra, 255 v to end of book would seem to indicate that these folios were not part of the original compilation. It is hardly a mere coincidence that Ó Cuirnín's work is invariably on the uncoloured folios, likewise Mac Fir Bisig's own where Ó Cuirnín is his collaborator. Did the collaboration of these two men fall somewhat later in point of time than that of Mac Fir Bisig and Ó Cuindlis? Generally speaking, additions to the text throughout can be recognized by their lack of colour.

Apart from the signatures and the jottings in identified hands already noted there is nothing to indicate former ownership of the ms. except the class marks AAA 18, A 1 3, D 19 occurring on fo. 10 (fo. 1, infra).According to Sir John Gilbert, these class marks "are those which may be seen on all Ussher's mss., indicating four different arrangements which took place prior to 1688" (note initialled J.H.G., Acad. Cat., p. 884, cf. Gwynn, Catalogue of Irish Manuscripts in Trinity College, Dublin, ix), the Book of Lecan having "passed into the Library of Trinity College with the Library of Archbishop Ussher, of which it formed a part" (J.H.G., loc. cit). Ussher would appear to have been in possession of the book in 1636, when he lent it to Conall MacGeoghegan, as stated by Michael O'Clery in his preface to the Irish Calendar (O'Curry, Acad. Cat., p. 883). It is not known when the book passed into Ussher's possession, but it is possible that he obtained it from the Piers family. A niece of Archbishop Ussher's married a grandson of Henry Piers of Tristernagh (see above). D.N.B., s. v. Henry Jones (article by Robert Dunlop).

The contents of the ms. include variant versions of Lebar Gabála, transcripts of the Naomsenchas, Historia Britonum of Nennius, Uraicept na nÉces, Cóir Anmann, Book of Rights, Bans(.)enchas, Dinds(.)enchas, and genealogical and hagiographical material. It has a strong resemblance in content to the Book of Ballymote, and it can be proved that at one point at least the Lecan and Ballymote scribes copied directly from the same original (cf. Lec, ff. 211-212 with BB fo. 193).

Among the authorities mentioned throughout the book by scribes (or by authors) are Libar Glinni Da Lach, Libar na Fuachongbala, fo. 51 rd; Lebar Dúine Da Leathglas, the books of Flann Mainistrech, fo. 77 vb; Saltair Caisil and Lebar Oileain Insi Duin, fo. 120 vb, ll. 14-5; Libar Sochair Lothra ata i meadon Libro Paluo, fo. 114 va, l. 2; Libar Lothra Ruadain, fo. 122 ra, Cin Droma Snechta, fo. 77 vb, 123 rb i:

The ms. is at present unbound, having been detached for the purpose of being photographed for the Irish Manuscripts Commission. The gatherings are irregular (and many single leaves are inserted), viz.: 1-9; 10-17; 18-27; 28-29; 30; 31-42; 43-52; 53-61 (58 being a single leaf); 62-71; 72-81 (75, 78 detached singles); 82-91 (84, 90 singles); 92; 93-101 (96 single); 102-111; 112-121; 122-131; 132-140 (133 single); 141-150; 151-162; 163-172; 173-183 (182 single); 184; 185-192; 193-202 (194, 199 singles); 203-212; 213; 214; 215-220; 221; 222-229; 230; 231-240; 241-249 (244 single); 250-259; 260; 261; 262; 263; 264-273; 274-282 (276 single); 283-293; 294-302 (301 single); 303-312. The tooled leather binding bears the name "Leabhar Leacain" on back of cover, and is the work of Geo. Mullen, Dublin, 1831, who washed, repaired, and rebound the ms. at that date (see front cover, inf. marg.). Former Acad. No. 42/6.
