Notes on Srah Castle and the Briscoes

Draft letter from Fr. Hurley, St Francis Xavier Church, Gardiner St., Dublin, to Pádraig [?], comprising 'notes from mss Mt Briscoe 1785.' The letter composed in Irish, contains transcripts in English from an 18th century manuscript loaned to Hurley in 1948 from Mrs Briscoe following a lecture to the Kildare Archaeological Society. Hurley notes that the author of the manuscript was a good historian and evidently had a good knowledge of sources available to him at the time of writing. The manuscript concerns the history of the Briscoes, the marriage of John Briscoe to Eleanor Kearney and the construction of Srahkerne Castle (Srah Castle, Tullamore) in 1588.
