MS A 34

Catalogue of Irish Manuscripts in University College Dublin

A 34


A miscellaneous collection (paper), bound in cover like those of A 30 etc. and marked 'A 34, Cláranna' in gilt on spine. Items 1-2, 5, probably 17th cent.; items 3-4, 18th cent. All the lists deal with the same material, the Louvain collection, and are evidently inventories taken at different times. Many of the MSS listed are identifiable as now belonging to the present collection; others are in the Bibliothéque Royale, Brussels; others still possibly in other collections; but many more are lost (cf. C. Mooney, IER 60 (1942) 221-2).
