Scope and content

A photographic print of the ‘Éire’ page from Arthur O’Murnaghan’s ‘Leabhar na hAiséirighe’ (The Book of the Resurrection). The ‘Éire’ page is dominated by the Irish word for Ireland which is superimposed over a list of alternative names for the country such as ‘Banba’, Inisfail’, ‘Inis-Ealga’, ‘Fódla’, ‘Scota’, ‘Ierne’, ‘Hibernia’, ‘Moira’ and ‘Juverna’. This is surrounded by panels of Celtic filigree designs, figures of birds, a round tower, and a quotation from ‘The Vision of St. Bridget’. Reproductions of the popular ‘Éire’ page were sold to raise funds for the completion of ‘Leabhar na hAiséirighe’. (Volume page 27)
