O'Flaherty, Roderic (Ó Flaithbheartaigh, Ruairi) : The Ogygia Vindicated  

Auction Date / Lot No.: 14 September 2013 / 31

Published Estimate: €200-250

Price Realised: €200

  • The Ogygia Vindicated: Against the Objections of Sir George Mac Kenzie, King's Advocate for Scotland in the Reign of King James II. (A Posthumous Work) by Roderic O'Flaherty, Esq; to which is annexed; An Epistle from John Lynch D.D. to M.Boileau, G. Faulkner Dublin, and A Disertaion by C. O'Connor, 1775, 1st edition. Contemporary brown calf, bookplate of PJC Talbot, pp299.Ó Flaithbheartaigh was the last de jure Lord of Iar Connacht, and the last recognized chief of the O'Flaherty clan. He lost the greater part of his ancestral estates to Cromwellian confiscations in the 1650s. The remainder was stolen through deception, by his son's father-in-law, Richard Nimble Dick Martin of Ross. He died in poverty at Park, near Bearna. He is perhaps most often associated with his elaborate history of Ireland, Ogygia, published in 1685 as Ogygia: seu Rerum Hibernicarum Chronologia & etc. Ogygia was immediately criticised for its scholarship by Sir George Mackenzie of Rosehaugh (1636–91), Dean of Faculty (1682) at Aberdeen. The arguments about O'Flaherty's continued well into the 18th century, culminating in the present work, The Ogygia Vindicated by the historian Charles O'Conor, in which O'Connor adds explanatory footnotes to the original work.
