From A Compendium of Irish Biography, 1878
De Ferings, Richard, Archbishop of Dublin, consecrated to that office in 1299. He is worthy of remembrance as having for a time succeeded in allaying the jealousy between the two Dublin cathedral bodies — St. Patrick's and Christ Church. It was arranged that both should be called cathedrals — Christ Church to have the precedence; the bodies of the Archbishops to be alternately buried in either church; their crosses, mitres, and rings to be deposited in Christ Church. He lived much abroad, and died on the Continent, 18th October 1306, on a return journey from Rome.

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.
