In issuing this small work I hope that any shortcomings may be overlooked, and there are not a few. If this work meets with encouragement, I shall prepare a larger work, and for that purpose I shall be glad to receive notes and lists of surnames in Ireland. It is a work of no mean effort to understand the various interchanges and synonyms of surnames, and the interchanges of Irish surnames in particular, from their original Gaelic forms.
I am indebted for the information contained in this work to the works of Dr. O'Donovan, Dr. McBain, the Scottish historian; Adams' and White's "Scottish Clans"; "The Celtic Monthly," and local information as regards Ulster, etc.
"Do Chum Glóire Dé agus Onora na h-Eireann."
óMICHEIL O CLEIRIGH.
From a sad, comfortless childhood Giles Truelove developed into a reclusive and uncommunicative man whose sole passion was books. For so long they were the only meaning to his existence. But when fate eventually intervened to have the outside world intrude upon his life, he began to discover emotions that he never knew he had.
A story for the genuine booklover, penned by an Irish bookseller under the pseudonym of Ralph St. John Featherstonehaugh.
