'This collection of fourteen contributions in honour of Kenneth Nicholls is a fitting tribute to a fine scholar who has single-handedly done so much to construct an integrated vision of the operation of native Iris society in the medieval and early modern periods … [a] worthy tribute to a great scholar’, Mary Ann Lyons, Studia Hibernica.

‘This handsome volume has been published in tribute to Kenneth Nicholls, formerly of University College, Cork, whose publications, particularly in the 1970s, shed more light on Gaelic Irish life in the medieval and early modern periods than those of any other historian, before or since …. in terms of scope, content, and presentation, this collection builds upon the varied work undertaken by Nicholls throughout the years and is a fitting tribute to this most influential of historians', Brendan Scott, Sixteenth Century Journal.

'David Edwards is to be congratulated on bringing together such a varied and wide-ranging collection of articles, which will form the basis for much valuable future research', Salvador Ryan, Irish Historical Studies.

‘This is a fitting tribute to a fine scholar', Steven G. Ellis, EHR.

‘[T]here is much of value for medievalists …. [It] is a fitting tribute to the outstanding contribution that Kenneth Nicholls has made to both the medieval and the early modern periods in Irish history’, Marie T. Flanagan, Cambrian Medieval Celtic Studies.
