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.

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 touching story for the genuine booklover, written by an Irish bookseller under the pseudonym of Ralph St John Featherstonehaugh.
