Acta Sanctorum Hiberniae
ACTA SANCTORUM HIBERNIAE is the abbreviated title of a celebrated work on the Irish saints by the Franciscan , John Colgan (Leuven , 1645). Aided by Father Hugh Ward , O.F.M., Father Stephen White , S.J., and Brother Míchél Ó Cléirigh , O.F.M., Colgan sedulously collected enormous material for the Lives of the Irish Saints, and at length, after thirty years of sifting and digesting his materials, put to press his Acta Sanctorum Hiberniae, a portion of the expense of which was defrayed by Archbishop O\'Reilly of Armagh . The first volume, covering 270 lives of Irish saints (except Brigid and Patrick) for the months of January, February, and March, was intended to be the third volume of the Ecclesiastical Antiquities of Ireland, but only one volume was printed at Leuven in 1645. A replica was produced in Dublin in 1948

Nagnata
NAGNATA (Magnata) is a town noted on the co-ordinate map of the 2nd century AD Alexandrian scholar Claudius Ptolemy . It is located in northwest Ireland between the mouths of the rivers Ravius (Ῥαουιος), perhaps the Erne , and Libnius (Λιβνιος), perhaps the Moy . This is the only town noted on the Irish west, southern or northern coast. Surviving manuscripts of Ptolemy’s Geography refers to the towns Hibernis (Teamhair’Erann), Rhaeba (Cruchain) and Magnata (Sligo) as "opishmoi" a Greek word meaning "designated" or "distinguished". Much of his work was based on the now lost geography of Marinus of Tyre . As there were no towns in the classical sense in early Ireland and as Ptolemy’s information was derived indirectly through traders, it is likely that the places which he calls cities were ancient places of assembly and hence trade

Túath
A TúATH (plural túatha) was a medieval Irish polity smaller than a kingdom. The word is from Old Irish , and is often translated as "people" or "nation". It is cognate with the Welsh and Breton tud (people), the Galician toudo, and the Germanic þeudō (for which see theodiscus ). The term "túath" referred to both a geographical territory and the people who lived on that territory. In Modern Irish it is spelled tuath, without the fada (length mark), and means "countryside". In ancient Irish terms, a household was reckoned at about 30 people per dwelling. A trícha cét ("thirty hundreds"), was an area comprising 100 dwellings or, roughly, 3,000 people. A túath consisted of a number of allied trícha céta, and therefore referred to no fewer than 6,000 people. Probably a more accurate number for a túath would be no fewer than 9,000 people

Nath Í Of Achonry
Saint NATH Í, or CRUMNATHY, (fl. 6th century) was an early Irish saint who was remembered as the founder of Achonry . He is said to have been born in the barony of Leyney, in present-day Co. Sligo . In the 17th century, John Colgan compiled a Latin Life of St Cormac, published in the Acta Sanctorum Hiberniae series, which relates that Cormac left his native Munster for Connacht and arrived in the area of Leyney. When Niall, the brother of the local chieftain Diarmait, begged the saint for a blessing, Cormac revealed that he was to have a son by the name of Conamel, whose descendants would include a number of illustrious saints, such as Náth Í "the priest". In the Martyrology of Donegal (9 August), he is described as the priest (cruimthir) Nath Í of Achad Cain Conairi. He is said to have studied under St Finnián of Clonard

Erenagh
The medieval Irish office of ERENAGH Irish : airchinnech was responsible for receiving parish revenue from tithes and rents, building and maintaining church property and overseeing the termonn lands that generated parish income. Thus he had a prebendary role. The erenagh originally had a tonsure but took no other holy orders; he had a voice in the Chapter when they consulted about revenues, paid a yearly rent to the Bishop and a fine on the marriage of each daughter. The role usually passed down from generation to generation in certain families in each parish. After the Reformation and the Dissolution of the Monasteries the role of erenagh became subsumed in the responsibilities of the parson in each parish. SURNAMEThe common surname McInerney is derived from the Irish, Mac an Airchinnigh (son of the erenagh). As may be supposed, this surname arose in various areas in Ireland leading to numerous unrelated bearers of the name

County Town
A COUNTY TOWN is usually the location of administrative or judicial functions within the county , or it has been established over time as the de facto main town of a county. The concept of a county town eventually became detached from its original meaning of where the county administration or county hall is based. In fact, many county towns are no longer part of the administrative county. For example, Nottingham
Nottingham
is administered by a unitary authority entirely separate from the rest of Nottinghamshire
