(just before 2nd nocturn in service for St Sebastian, 20 January - before 3rd nocturn in service for St Martin, 11 November): -us in uni. Ad hoc tantum sub clamide Cristi militem gerebat abscondi - satis est quod huc usque certaui sed quoad ipse (iusse catchword). Loss of text after 151v, 161v, 168v, 171v. On 139v, among the rubrics: Sancti Edani episcopi et conf. duplex festum secundum statuta prouincialis consilii ecclesie Dublinensis. This is followed by a prayer naming St Aedan. On 142 mention, in a rubric, of the feast of St Brigid; on 149v, among the rubrics: Sancti Mokyni abbatis. Omnia fiant de communi unius conf. et abbatis. Sancti Kerani episcopi et conf. duplex festum, with prayer naming St Kieran. On 150-151v service in honour of St Patrick. On folios 168-170v service in honour of St Canice: the antiphon at vespers begins (on 168) O pastor pie Cannice benigne respice turme… (another copy in Canterbury 127/16; 'Analecta Hymnica Medii Aeui', edd. G.M. Dreves et al., (Leipzig, 1886-1922), repr. (New York and London, 1961), 55 volumes, 25:187, with use of TCD MS 78; U. Chevalier, 'Repertorium Hymnologicum', (Louvain and Paris, 1892-1921), 6 volumes, no. 30796); another antiphon (170) proceeds: Dulcescat filiis patris memoria, cuius prodigiis uiget Ossoria, sacris presidiis floret Kilkenia, eius suffragiis donentur gaudia nobis in patria.Inscriptions: -- 130 has (a) 'By me John…,' (b) 'To my loving frend James bathe…'-- 152v has 'John / Brown.' John Bath’s name on 92 was apparently written by William Gibbons. The Clondalkin associations suggest that the antiphonal was originally used there.
