Manuscripts from the collection of Rev. Donald MacNicol, minister of Lismore.

Identifier: Acc.2152

Content Description

Gaelic manuscripts collected by the Rev. Donald MacNicol (1735-1802).

MacNicol's collection arrived in the Library in 1951. From the late 1960s until its rediscovery in 2022, a part of the collection had been missing. This rediscovered part is listed here under its original reference number Acc.2152. The cataloguing is still to be upgraded in parts.

Those manuscripts from the collection that had remained in the Library were re-numbered and catalogued separately before the rediscovery of the missing parts. For that part of the collection, and see MSS.14850-14864.

The collection while still complete was listed as Acc.2152 in John Mackechnie's 'Catalogue of Gaelic Manuscripts' (2 volumes, Boston 1973), vol. 1, pages 325-337 (Acc.2152).


  • Creation: ca. 1750-ca. 1900 and undated.
