Excerpt from Transactions of the Iberno-Celtic Society for 1820, Vol. 1: Containing a Chronological Account of Nearly Four Hundred Irish Writers, Commencing With the Earliest Account of Irish History, and Carried Down to the Year of Our Lord 1750; With a Descriptive Catalogue of Such of Their Works as Are Still Extant in Verse Amongst the various modes adopted by most modern nations for the advancement Of Science, and the investigation of natural and civil History, that of establishing literary Societies seems to be as effectual as it is prevalent. There are few nations in Europe that have not associa tions to promote Arts and Sciences; to encourage philosophical research; to illustrate local antiquities, and perpetuate national History. Ireland, also, has had her Societies, some of whom laboured, by their publications, to rescue from oblivion and decay, some of the vast quantities of her ancient Annals, her Laws, her Poetry, and her Music.
