John A's Lost Manuscript

The Desmond Survey, a lost manuscript of Professor John A. Murphy’s, was recently launched online at the Irish Conference of Historians in Limerick. Originally transcribed for publication in 1960s but never put in press, this is a large survey of County Kerry which the crown undertook following the death of the earl of Clancarty in 1596. Upgraded from old galley proofs by researcher Emer Purcell, it is now online at CELT http://www.ucc.ie/celt/published/E580000-001/index.html complete with splendid maps of the MacCarthy lordship.

Kinsale's Accidental Royal Visit

Kinsale's Accidental Royal Visit

  • 18 May 2012

Hiram Morgan of the Department of History, University College Cork, has revealed an exciting new source for Irish history.

 

A little known account in Old French tells the story of a four day visit to Kinsale by Archduke Ferdinand of Habsburg in June 1518 after his fleet was forced to land in Ireland on the way from Spain to the Low Countries because of stormy weather.

 

The account was written by a royal secretary, Laurent Vital. It is full of curiosity and good humour and unlike contemporary English observers he is not hostile towards the Irish. It is an important addition to our knowledge.

 

History Ireland has an introductory article on the visit, a translation of Vital’s account is freely accessible on the CELT website @ www.ucc.ie/celt/published/T500000-001 and a seminar will be held in Kinsale at Blue Haven at 7 pm on 18 May.

 

Hiram Morgan can be contacted about this on 087 9333 628
