This is a digital copy of a book that was preserved for generations on library shelves before it was carefully scanned by Google as part of a project 
to make the world's books discoverable online. 

It has survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book to enter the public domain. A public domain book is one that was never subject 
to copyright or whose legal copyright term has expired. Whether a book is in the public domain may vary country to country. Public domain books 
are our gateways to the past, representing a wealth of history, culture and knowledge that's often difficult to discover. 

Marks, notations and other marginalia present in the original volume will appear in this file - a reminder of this book's long journey from the 
publisher to a library and finally to you.

first is a poem of twcnty-eeven etanias 
praise of .Malachy It and the principal Irish 
ebieftaijis of Ids lime. It was written after 
tbe death of Itriao Boroimho [aeo Ubias], 
who ix rnvntioni'd in it. The fweoud, of &Ciy-

second son of Tn.lp of the Towi-r. king of

known as thi3 Clan Ian A brack, probably from 
the fact that one of their chiefs was f'.«tered 
in I,ocbaher ((.iiiBnoRT, Weattm Highland*,

the chiefs who joinetl Gra bam of ClaTorbCMlM 
at Locbober in 1(J81I, and ai>o took part ia 
the hsinc in the nnrttiirn Iiljihlands under 
General Buchan. Ilo is represented in the 
' Qnuneid* as ' tinriblit in unwimlKd ariDX, 
coA-ered as to hie breast with row bide, and 
toworinR far above bi)i whnlo line by bvad 
and ahnuldi^rs' (p. \2\). Th» author of the 
'Life of EwaiL G'limeron' describes bitn as 
' a person of great integrity, honour, f^od 
nature, and coura^,' and as *Mron^, active. 
and of the bif^'^^ejit size, much loved bv bia 
ncii^hbourH, and bliimvluss in hia conduct'

On the occasion of llim uiarrio^ of the

Imving been bis counwl at the first (rial, was 
fully aware of the circumstances which had 
indun><l him to moke confe«»iou. But a still 
more flngnnt instance of siruiutng' ihe law to 
secure conviction was the prosecution of UtQ 
Earl of A^yll in December 16»t for lease 
makiu^, on account of b CMerrutiun he bad 
made in taking the teet [see CaUprrix,

augurated the period known as tho ' kilUng
