Launch of the Proclamations of Ireland - 22/05/2014
Last night Mr Justice Adrian Hardiman launched the five-volume edition of the Proclamations of Ireland, 1660-1820 in the wonderful setting of the Rotunda at the National Museum of Ireland, Kildare Street. Mr Justice Hardiman praised the editors, James Kelly and Marian Lyons, for their monumental work in assembling this edition, adding that people would be indebted to them for a long time to come, especially in relation to those proclamations which had previously been thought lost. In a considered speech, Judge Hardiman compared proclamations with modern acts of parliament and said while they don't tell the whole story they provide an idea of contemporary issues throughout the reigns covered in the five volumes. Professor Kelly told the gathering how this edition, which presented over 2,500 proclamations, had something in it for everyone, from insurgencies and the right to carry arms, to quarantine, abductions and murders. He also paid tribute to the work of the Irish Manuscripts Commission in undertaking the publication of important multi-volume works. Thanking Judge Hardiman, Professor Lyons went on to thank the large network of librarians, archivists and researchers who helped to bring this edition together and to check it, in particular the work of Dr John Bergin and Dr James McGuire. Among the guests at the reception last night were John Larkin, QC, Attorney General of Northern Ireland, Ronan Keane, former Chief Justice and Dr Philip Nolan, President of NUI Maynooth. Pictured right between Judge Hardiman and John Larkin, QC, are the editors James Kelly and Marian Lyons and Dr James McGuire (top), Chairman of the Irish Manuscripts Commission. The volumes in this edition are available to purchase separately (€60 each) or together as a set for a reduced price (€250).
