From A Compendium of Irish Biography, 1878
Dallan Forgaill, an Irish poet and writer who distinguished himself at the meeting of bards and others at Dromketh in 574. His compositions are continually referred to by O'Curry; the best known is his elegy on the death of St. Columcille. He died about 600, and was succeeded as chief poet of Ireland by the young poet Seanchan.

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.
