Leabhar Breac

The Leabhar Breac, known also as Leabhar Mor Duna Doighre, was compiled from older sources at the beginning of the fourteenth century near to the town of Loughrea in east County Galway.

The book mostly contains religious texts but also includes an early glossary of the Irish Language and a number of histories. The book passed through various private hands until the 18th Century when it came into the possession of the Royal Irish Academy.

During the 1870’s the Royal Irish Academy published a limited number of facsimile copies in two parts. They rarely become available but we have been lucky enough to obtain a copy of Part Two (published in 1876) which we are currently offering for sale at our shop in Cong.

Please call in and browse awhile…

We are very pleased to be back in new premises in Cong. Our new shop is located next door to Ryan’s Hotel (just fifty yards up the Main Street from our old shop).

We have more space available and have extended our range of books to include a larger number of antiquarian and collectible books and a greater selection of new books.

As always we continue to specialise in Irish Interest and Fishing books while stocking books of all categories and for all interests.

I look forward to welcoming you……..
