According to the original design, it should have included at least three other courses — on the internal arrangements and furniture of houses, on food and drink, and on the burial of the dead. This series of lectures compiises several short courses which were delivered from time to time.I have also given the complete text and a new translation of the whole of the poem on the Fair of Carman^ which O'Curry has made so much use of in his second Lecture, and the value of which, as an illustration of Irish customs, cannot be overrated.I had originally intended to prefix to the first volume of the present series of Lectures a short introduction chiefly on the subject of the stone, bronze, andiron ages, that being a subject which came more or less within my own proper domain of science.
