Prof John McCafferty Publishes New Book

The UCD School of History is delighted to announce the publication of ‘The Act Book of the Diocese of Armagh, 1518–1522’ edited by Professor John McCafferty.

The ecclesiastical Act Book for the southern part of the diocese of Armagh covering the years 1518–1522 is a unique survival for Ireland. Covering the marital, sexual, testamentary, reputational and other squabbles of men and women living in modern Co. Louth and adjoining counties it offers a rare and vivid glimpse into the lives of ordinary individuals in early sixteenth-century Ireland.
