The origins of Clann Chruitín: chronicler-poets of the learned Gaelic tradition
by Luke McInerney

Clann Chruitín were among the most notable learned kindreds in County Clare, holding hereditary lands in west Clare. The family was associated with the native literary tradition from the fourteenth until the mid-nineteenth centuries and included two notable Gaelic poets, Aodh Buí Mac Cruitín and Aindrias Mac Cruitín.
