Book of Fenagh

The Book of Fenagh, called also the Book of St. Caillin, from St. Caillin, who founded the abbey of Fenagh, in the fifth century. It was partly composed by St. Caillin himself, and contains some poetical pieces, called the Prophecies of St. Caillin; and much interesting information on the history of the O’Rourkes, and the affairs of Connaught. Patrick O’Maolconry; Teige O’Rody, abbot of Fenagh; and others, are mentioned amongst its compilers.
