A number of Irish annals were compiled up to and shortly after the end of Gaelic Ireland in the 17th century. Manuscript copies of extant annals include the following:

*Annals of Boyle
*Annals of Clonmacnoise
*Annals of Connacht
*Annals of the Four Masters
*Annals of Inisfallen
*Annals of Lough Cé
*Annals of Multifarnan

Many of these annals, and much more besides, have been translated and published by either the School of Celtic Studies, Dublin Institute for Advanced Studies, or the Irish Texts Society. In addition, the text of many are available on the internet at the Corpus of Electronic Texts (CELT Project) hosted by the History Department of University College Cork, National University of Ireland.
