From A Compendium of Irish Biography, 1878
Donlevy, Andrew, D.D., LL.D., was born in 1694, probably in the County of Sligo. In 1710 he repaired to Paris, and studied there in the Irish College, of which he ultimately rose to be Prefect. In 1742 he published at Paris the Catechism of Christian Doctrine, a work still in extensive circulation. The Irish type employed is peculiar to the Parisian publications, and is that used in MacCurtin's Irish Dictionary. He died some time after 1761.

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.
