Catalpa said:Have you ever readCael said:Anyone wanting to know something more about the level of direct communication between Ireland and the continent at the start of the 17C should have a look at the diary written by Tadhg Ó Cianáin in 1607. He was part of Ó Neill's party which set out for Rome. His diary is very valuable as it gives a detailed account of the life and conditions he encountered as they travelled through Holland, Belgium, France,Germany and Italy. There is a fine edition of the diary called "Imeacht na nIarlaí," prepared by Pádraig deBarra and the late Cardinal Tomás Ó Fiaich.

Very good read and a strictly non - revisionist account of one of Ireland's best Commanders.
No I havent heard of it before, but I will try to get my hands on it, thanks for the recommendation.
