Removal of the 'Song'
The Song of Dermot and the Earl is not rightly included in the article (Wikipedia doesn't cite primary sources at length). If the Orpen translation is free of copyright, it could be posted at Wikisource. Charles Matthews (talk) 20:49, 2 September 2010 (UTC)
- The Song of Dermot and the Earl
Of Hugh de Lacy I shall tell you
How he enfeoffed his barons,
Knights, serjeants and retainers.
Castleknock, in the first place, he gave
To Hugh Tyrell, whom he loved so much;
And Castle Brack according to the writing,
To baron William le Petit,
And the land of Rathkenny,
The cantred of Ardnorcher then
To Meiller, who was of great worth,
Gave Hugh de Lacy -
To the good Meiler Fitz Henry;
To Gilbert de Nangle, moreover
He gave the whole of Morgallion;
To Jocelin he gave the Navan,
And the lands of Ardbrackan,
(The one was son the other father,
According to the statement of the mother)
To Richard de Tuite likewise
He gave rich fief;
Rathwire he gave moreover
To the baron Robert de Lacy.
To Richard de la Chapelle
He gave good and fine land,
To Geoffrey de Constantine Kilbixi
Near to Rathconarty;
And Skryne he then gave by charter;
To Adam de Feypo he gave it;
To Gilbert de Nugent,
And likewise to William de Musset,
He gave lands and honours,
In the presence of barons and vavasours.
Why was the picture of Kilkea Castle included in the article? It appears just below the picture of Trim Castle, so maybe it pertains to this section of the article?:
Lordship of Meath
De Lacy only escaped with difficulty; he seems to have left Dublin in charge of Earl Richard de Clare by the king's orders, and to have commenced securing Meath by the erection of castles. Among these was Trim Castle, which was put in charge of Hugh Tyrrel.
I couldn't find any mention of Kilkea Castle in the Hugh de Lacy article in the Dictionary of National Biography (footnote ), nor could I find any mention of Hugh de Lacy in the Wikipedia article on Kilkea Castle.
