Synchronisation of the Irish Annals
Welcome to this site which provides access to the tables which synchronise the various collections of the Irish annals in order to obtain a cogent chronology for them all. The most useful overall introduction to this material is my paper, 'The Chronology of the Irish annals' published in the Proceedings of the Royal Irish Academy, Section C in 1998, to which the tables presented here provide a further appendix, as is discussed in pp. 229-239 of that paper. A more detailed introduction is provided below.
The tables are divided into a series of sub-tables based upon the lacunae in the manuscripts and they may be viewed ONLINE as follows:
Introduction : Provides a detailed account of the tables.
AD 307-358 : AT, CS, AC, AI, AB and DF collated over these years.

AD 425-487 : CS, AC, AU, AI, AB and AR collated over these years.
AD 488-722 : AT, CS, AC, AU, AI, AB and DF collated over these years. Please note that this last is a LARGE file of 649 Kb.
Alternately this material is also available in POSTSCRIPT files which may be saved and then printed using either Unix, or PC tools such as PrintFile.
