To commemorate the acquisition, Burns Librarian Robert O'Neill welcomed Mexican Consul Carlos Rico and Vice Consul of Cultural Affairs Taide Navarrete-Pellicer to campus on March 16.
During their visit, O'Neill pointed out the library's other issues and editions of the text by Thomas Kinsella, whose English translation of the Tain Bo Cuailnge is considered by many the definitive retelling of the ancient Irish tale concerning the Cattle Raid of Cooley and the heroic warrior Cuchulainn.
"It is an honor to add the first Spanish translation of the Kinsella text to our Tain holdings," O'Neill said.
