I found this passage on a web page the other day:
The Age of Christ, 704.
The third year of Congal.
Ceannfaeladh, grand son of Aedh Breac, Abbot of Beannchair Bangor, died
on the 8th of April.
Dachonna of Dairi, and Ceallan, son of Seachnasach, a wise man, died.
Oissene of Freamhainn Frewin, son of Gallust, Abbot of Cluain Mic Nois,
died. He was of the tribe of Calraighe Teathbha.
Conchubhar, son of Maelduin, chief of Cinel Cairbre died.
Beg Boirche, King of Ulidia, took a pilgrim's staff, and
died on his pilgrimage at the end of twelve years afterwards.
Flann Feabhla, son of Scanlan, Abbot of Ard Macha Armagh, died.
The owner of the page has written the following:
> What you found the reference to Frewin in is volume one of the Annals of
> the Four Masters, written in the 1500s-1600s - its a huge work in
> relation to the Chieftains of Donegal at that time - the O'Donnells.
This is Annals of the Kingdom of Ireland, by the Four Masters, from the Earliest Period to the Year 1616 listed on Amazon, but it seems to be out of print.
Has anyone seen or got a copy of this book?
