Descrizione

I have laid myself under so many debts in this task of compilation that it is impossible to make complete acknow ledgment: yet I cannot omit some mention of Dr. Macdevitt's excellent volume Tae Donegal High/ands. For the history I have consulted chiefly the Dictionary of National Biograptzy, Hill's filaea'omze/[s of Antrim and of course o'curry's edition of the Amiais of tfie Four Masters. I owe a more personal debt to my friend who is known as Moira o'neill for her permission to reprint two charming lyrics, and acknowledgments on the same account are due to the editors of the Spectator and Blacker/om: Magazine. But chiefly I have to thank Mr. John Cooke, editor of Murray's Hand-wok to Ireland, first for the assistance afforded to me by that excellent work, and secondly for his great kindness in revising the proof sheets of this book. To my many friends in the North I owe a gratitude which goes back to days long before I ever troubled them about things that I was writing; and I entreat their indulgence for stories maimed in the telling, and for whatever else I may seem to have written amiss in these pages which treat of a country not to be separated from my remembrance of them.
