Irish Manuscripts Commission Book Launch

Publication date:

On Thursday 3 March at the Irish Manuscripts Commission, Merrion Sqaure, Dublin, the Attorney General launched two IMC editions: The acts of James II's Irish parliament of 1689, edited by John Bergin and Andrew Lyall, and Early Stuart Irish warrants 1623–1639, edited by Mark Empey.


On opening the Attorney General noted “we mark with gratitude the filling of two gaps: Dr Mark Empey’s edition of Early Stuart Irish Warrants 1623-1639 fills a gap that many of us were in danger of falling into because we did not know it was there and Mr Bergin and Mr Lyall have filled by their scholarly edition of the Acts of the Parliament of James II of 1689 a gap of which we were all aware but which many of us despaired of ever being filled.”
