This is my transcript of the genealogies from the Book of Ballymote, so far pp. 67-118. Italics indicate expansions of abbreviations, parentheses indicate additions in the MS such as interlinear interpolations, brackets indicate editorial notes, and braces indicate the page and column of the MS. The text is arbitrarily divided into numbered sections, and many anchors are included to facilitate hyperlinking. Since I only know a hundred or so words of Irish, the less formulaic passages are likely to be mangled, so please expect and excuse the many errors.
