Similar in organization and narrative style to Paul’s Scots Peerage, including both extant and extinct titles. Lodge provides not bare lineages but full narrative histories of the distinguished families of Ireland, both Celtic and Anglo-Norman. Marginal notations and symbols allow rapid searching for genealogical data, but slow down and smell the shamrocks — there’s a lot of substance here. Noted for its accuracy (for the time) and footnoted to original documents and traditional accounts.
