Those of you with an interest in pre-1700 Ireland and with some command of palaeography may like to know that 12 Irish manuscripts have now been made available online at Irish Scripts Online. They are manuscripts acquired in the 17th century by the Irish College at Leuven in what is now Belgium. I have not glanced at all of them, but some are in Latin and some in Irish. At least one includes some genealogies - MS 2569-72. Others include some historical material. MS 2542-43 contains historical notes. Most of the others seem to be mainly religious - saints’ lives, martyrologies etc - or literary.
