MacCotter, Colman of Cloyne: A Study. MacCotter, Paul. Colman of Cloyne: A Study. Dublin, Four Courts Press, 2004. 16.5 cm x 24 cm. 152 pags. Original Hardcover with dustjacket and protective Mylar covering. Very good condition with only minor signs of external wear.

Saint Colmán of Cloyne (530 – 606), also Colmán mac Léníne, was a monk, founder and patron of Cluain Uama, now Cloyne, County Cork, Ireland, and one of the earliest known Irish poets to write in the vernacular. Cloyne appears to have been his earliest settlement. The cathedral and round tower are situated on a limestone eminence in the midst of the valley, surrounded by rich meadows. In the rock is the cave extending in various branches underground to a great distance, from which the town derives its name. Here it is supposed Colman took up his abode as a place of security and the remains of his primitive oratory, known as Colman’s Chapel were still to be seen in 1813. Colmán is also believed to have founded a monastery at what would become Killagha Abbey in County Kerry. He was credited with extraordinary poetic powers, being styled by his contemporaries ‘royal poet of Munster’. Several of his Irish poems are still extant, notably a metrical panegyric on Saint Brendan. Colgan mentions a metrical life of Saint Senan by him. His surviving verses date from the period 565 and 604, and are among the earliest examples of Irish writing in the Latin alphabet. He is commonly thought to have composed Luin oc laib, a poem in praise of Domnall mac Muirchertaig (d. 566?), king of Tara, and another poem on the death of Áed Sláine (d. 604), king of the UÍ Néill. The latter poem has not survived complete. He died on 24 November (his subsequent feastday), circa 600, and his probable place of burial is Cloyne, where he may have left a school of poetry in existence. (Wikipedia).

O'Brien, Some Irish Loving: A Selection. O’Brien, Edna. Some Irish Loving: A Selection. First Edition. London, Weidenfeld and Nicolson, 1979. 14 x 22cm. 262 pages. Original hardcover with dustjacket in protective collector’s Mylar. Excellent condition, other than small tear to dustjacket. Signed by Edna O’Brien on titlepage.

An anthology selected and introduced by Edna O’Brien on the theme of love. It includes letters, drama, poetry, and short stories ranging from Cuchulain to an anonymous schoolgirl to Synge, Yeats, and Joyce, revealing Irish responses to love in all its forms and providing a catalogue of the ways of loving. In her introduction O’Brien comments that “the more righteous would have us believe that the Irish kept those lubbard appetites concerning love and passion in due subordination. But despite prognostications about the Vanishing Irish and about the excess of bachelors, the country is still there and in it people busily engaged in the drama of love”.

Pearse, Collected Works of Padraic H. Pearse: Songs of the Irish Rebels and Spec Pearse, Padraic H. Collected Works of Padraic H. Pearse: Songs of the Irish Rebels and Specimens from an Irish Anthology Some Aspects of Irish Literature, Three Lectures on Gaelic Topics. Dublin, Phoenix Publishing, 1924. 14.5 cm x 22 cm. VII, 236 pages. Original Hardcover with protective Mylar covering. Previous owner’s name scratched out on inside cover, slight foxing to page edges. Otherwise very good condition with only minor signs of external wear.

Patrick Henry Pearse (also known as Pádraic or Pádraig Pearse; Irish: Pádraig Anraí Mac Piarais; An Piarsach; 10 November 1879 – 3 May 1916) was an Irish teacher, barrister, poet, writer, nationalist and political activist who was one of the leaders of the Easter Rising in 1916. Following his execution along with fifteen others, Pearse came to be seen by many as the embodiment of the rebellion. Pearse’s early heroes were ancient Gaelic folk heroes such as Cúchulainn, though in his 30s he began to take a strong interest in the leaders of past republican movements, such as the United Irishmen Theobald Wolfe Tone and Robert Emmet. Both had been Protestant, but it was from such men as these that the fervently Catholic Pearse drew inspiration for the rebellion of 1916. Pearse was chosen by the leading IRB man Tom Clarke to be the spokesman for the Rising. It was Pearse who, on behalf of the IRB shortly before Easter in 1916, issued the orders to all Volunteer units throughout the country for three days of manoeuvres beginning Easter Sunday, which was the signal for a general uprising. When Eoin MacNeill, the Chief of Staff of the Volunteers, learned what was being planned without the promised arms from Germany, he countermanded the orders via newspaper, causing the IRB to issue a last-minute order to go through with the plan the following day, greatly limiting the numbers who turned out for the rising. When the Easter Rising eventually began on Easter Monday, 24 April 1916, it was Pearse who read the Proclamation of the Irish Republic from outside the General Post Office, the headquarters of the rising. After six days of fighting, heavy civilian casualties and great destruction of property, Pearse issued the order to surrender. Pearse and fourteen other leaders, including his brother Willie, were court-martialled and executed by firing squad. Thomas Clarke, Thomas MacDonagh and Pearse himself were the first of the rebels to be executed, on the morning of 3 May 1916. Pearse was 36 years old at the time of his death. (Wikipedia).
