Letters and Opinions
 Settlers: In the former Editions of this Work the new settlers in Ireland, after its invasion by the English in the twelfth century, were entered as "Anglo-Norman," or "English" Families. But we have found that many families whose names were so entered, are of Irish descent. It is, therefore, in our opinion, more correct to enter them as "New Settlers," than as Anglo-Norman or English.
Charlotte Milligan Fox, sister of the poet Alice Milligan, was a founding member of the Irish Folk Song Society and an indefatigable field collector of Irish traditional music. Her singularly important work on Irish haprers is here presented for the twenty-first century reader. This edition of Annals offers a much greater number of illustrations than were included in the original 1911 publication, a full biographical introduction, an extensive bibliography of the writings of Milligan Fox and an appendix discussing the variant texts of Arthur O’Neills Memoirs.
