The Catalogue of Irish manuscripts in the British Museum, v.1, p.20, gives Peregrine (Cucogry) O'Duigenan in place of Conary O'Clery, which agrees with Colgan's statement in his Acta sanctorum Hiberniae, 1645.
"The Four masters...were Michael, Conary, and Cucogry O'Clery, together with Ferfeasa O'Mulconry."
Vol.3-5, A.D. 1172-1616, were printed in 1848, as the editor originally intended to publish only that portion not included by C.O'Conor in Rerum hibernicarum scriptores, t.3, 1826. In 1851 vols.1-2, to 1171, were issued, with indices to all 5 vols.
