"The life [of St. Declan] herewith presented was copied in 1629 by Brother Michael O'Clery ... from an older ms. of Eochy O'Heffernan's dated 1582 ... Apparently O'Clery did more than transcribe; he reedited, as was his wont, into the literary Irish of his day ... The "Life [of St. Mochuda or Carthach] ... is in its present form a comparatively late production; it was transcribed by [John] Murphy between 1740 and 1750".--Introd.
