Wonderful things are happening in Cork. The Centre February 9, 2010
Reviewer: Australian Journal of Irish Studies from Republic of Ireland  
Wonderful things are happening in Cork. The Centre for Neo Latin Studies and Renaissance Latin Texts of Ireland project in University College Cork  directed by Keith Sidwell  has since 1999 been steadily unearthing  examining  publishing  so far on the web  and sometimes translating many of the more than 1000 printed works and equivalent number of manuscripts in Latin estimated to have been written between 1500 and 1750 by more than 300 Irish authors. Don Philip O Sullivan  Beare  1590 1636   best known for his propagandistic Historiae Catholicae Hiberniae Compendium  Lisbon 1621   is one of the chief authors in this pantheon and The Natural History of Ireland  suitably  represents the  first of  we hope  a very large number of such translations  some with Latin text  which will appear in various places over the next few years   Sidwell   Foreword  p. 8 . This edition both translates into English and publishes entirely for the first time the first  part of a long  unfinished fragment of a difficult manuscript  the Zoilomastix   Scourge of Zoilos    completed c.1626 and lost to the ages until its discovery in the University of Uppsala in 1932. This edition with its facing translations is clearly written  well annotated and wellindexed in an attractively produced volume  and so represents a tremendous boon to the scholarship of early modern Ireland.

Denis C O Sullivan s scholarship shines through in November 17, 2009
Reviewer: Colm Lennon Irish Arts Review from Republic of Ireland  
Denis C O Sullivan s scholarship shines through in his meticulous identification of the bewildering diversity of birds and beasts through their Greek  Latin  Spanish and Irish names and his rendition of them in their modern form. He has succeeded in editing sensitively a difficult manuscript and producing a lucid and fascinating translation of the work of one who  besides being a political polemicist  was something of a Linnaean avant la lettre.

Essentially The Natural History of Ireland is a na June 30, 2009
Reviewer: Frank Hanover Southern Star from Republic of Ireland  
Essentially The Natural History of Ireland is a natural gift of colloquial and assiduous natural history set against an upheaval no less remarkable than it is definitive. It s a valuable resource the accomplishment of which is a credit both to the publisher s commissioning policy and the devotional as well as consistent consideration of its bespoke editor and translator  Denis C. O Sullivan.
