New: The MacEgan Legal Treatise

Book cover image

Edited by Fergus Kelly.

This Treatise is attributed to Giolla na Naomh Mac Aodhagáin (MacEgan), chief judge of the province of Connacht, who died in battle in 1309 alongside his king Aodh Ó Conchobhair (O’Conor). It is of special importance as it provides a professional lawyer’s account of Irish ‘Brehon’ law in the period after the Anglo-Norman invasion of 1169.
