Annals of Inisfallen
The Annals of Inisfallen are a chronicle of the medieval history of Ireland. There are more than 2,500 entries spanning the years between AD 433 and AD 1450, but it is believed to have been written between the 12th and 15th centuries. It was written by the monks of Innisfallen Abbey, on Innisfallen Island on Lough Leane, near Killarney.
As well as the chronological entries, the manuscript contains a short, fragmented narrative of the history of pre-Christian Ireland, known as the pre-Patrician section. This section has many elements in common with Lebor Gabála Érenn.
They are to be distinguished from the misnamed 18th century compilation known as the Dublin Annals of Inisfallen.
