Who was Ailill Moshaulum?
CAMPS Research Lab
Friday 21 Sept, 12-2pm, Moore Institute Seminar Room
Ailill Ólomm, recorded in the medieval Irish genealogies as a common ancestor of the Éoganachta, Dál Cais and other population groups, and a well-known character in literary and historiographical tradition, plays an important role in medieval Irish stories about the Battle of Mag Mucrama. In this CAMPS lab, I will consider why his name as found in one of these stories, Scéla Moshauluim, should deviate from the usual form of his name in other sources, and the potential significance of this deviation.
As always, a light lunch will be provided around 1pm.
