What else do I need to know about it to find it on amazon? I'll post this
a few places and hope for a faster response that way.
>>It's actually a text (_Lebor Gabála Érenn_) of which several versions exist
in different manuscripts. The standard edition (bilingual, with Irish and
English on facing pages) is by the Irish Texts Society, but it's something like six
large volumes, so I don't know if it's something you'll want to jump up and
order (if you're *really* that interested, you can get it from
booksforscholars.com). You can also read translations of excerpts from it in the Cross &
Slover anthology of early Irish literature.
