About the Author John was born on July 9, 1809, in County Kilkenny at Attateemore in Ireland. Beginning work at the Irish Record Office early, he joined the Ordnance Survey in 1829, and came to work under Dr. Petrie there. (One named ‘Petrie’ would later design the typeface for O’Donovans “Annals of Ireland by the Four Masters”). Working on maps, place names and history, his notes were later published in fifty volumes and known as “The John O’Donovan Archaeological Survey”.

Among his other publications are “A Grammar of the Irish Language”; a supplement to “O’Reilly’s Irish Dictionary”; the “Topographical Poems” written by O’Dubhagain and O’Huidrin, enumerating the principal families and territories of Ireland, and their chiefs in the 14th century; and maps of ancient Ireland. - (courtesy of the IrishRootsCafe.)
