From A Compendium of Irish Biography, 1878
Porter, Francis, a Franciscan friar, was born in the County of Meath in the 17th century. He was Professor and Lecturer, and ultimately President, in the Irish College of St. Isidore's at Rome, where he died 7th April 1702. Harris's Ware gives a list of his Latin works, the principal of which are: Securis Evangelica ad Haeresis Radices Posita (Rome, 1674), Compendium Annalium Ecclesiasticorum Regni Hiberniae (Rome, 1690), and Systema Decretorum Dogmaticorum (Avignon, 1693).

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.
