As the Tudor reconquest of Ireland threatened the existence of the Gaelic world, John Colgan, Franciscan superior in Louvain, had just the right man to send to collect and copy as many manuscripts as he could find. The outcome of his work was the Annals of the Four Masters, which must forever stand among the most important sources of Irish history and culture. Narrated by Cyril Cusack.
