Inhoud en structuur

Bereik en inhoud

The three songbooks for the most part contain a variety of Irish popular songs in the English language. Songbook A also contains some poetry and extracts from Shakespearean plays. There are two handwritings in the manuscripts. The smaller, more pointed, less round, is that of Oliver Moran. The other may be that of Peter O'Hare whose name is in one of the manuscripts, but nothing is known of him. There is some other biographical information in the manuscripts.
