Our Irish Language Books
The Irish Roots Cafe publishes both CDs and
Books in the Irish Language. Today we highlight
two classic hardbound works by noted historian
John O’Donovan. The English and Irish appear side
by side within each hardbound book. Additional
material appears in Engish at the rear of these
volumes. As part of the season of Seachtain na
Gaeilge, we present them here.

Two distinguished titles
1. The Tribes and Customs of the Hy Many

Our Works from 1978-2016
We have also published a few works of Irish (Gaeilge)
music in the past, in very limited quantity. Hopefully
our works have led to increased use of the Irish language
in a small way. Next time we will cover the Irish language
songs that we have recorded and published over the last
35 years or so.
Our English language books and podcasts focus on Irish
genealogy and history. They will be covered at a later date.

www.Irishroots.com The Annals of Ireland
Mike O’Laughlin at the Irish Roots Cafe

Link to the Annals of Ireland
Video, Comments, illustrations
Follow the link above to our page with
a video and commentary on the Annals of
Ireland by the Four Masters. We show you
three of the hardbound editions of the
Annals, and we also have the Annals
available for purchase if desired.

Unknown First Edition
Several years ago when I inquired in Ireland,
many book dealers did not know about the
rare first edition by O’Donovan which was
published in five volumes over several years.
Today, perhaps the best known reprint of O’Donovans
edition, now has 7 slimmer volumes. This
makes it easier to handle.

Rare Original O’Donovan tr. 1847…
We are indeed lucky to have an original
matched set, imprinted with the name of
the original subscriber, along with
instructions on how to make this 5 book
set a 7 book set (complete with original new
title pages to accommodate the change.)

Held in our Kansas City Irish archives
The rarest first edition in our collection,
these annals are going up for sale, as
soon as we complete our inventory.
Do let me know if you are interested.

Genealogical Notes
Being a rare surviving work on the history
of Ireland, these annals contain notes on
the families of Ireland, and locations. The
footnotes are of particular interest as well.
