Abstract

The contribution seeks to unlock the origin of the phrase ‘Dá sirdéasa an domhan uile gusan Innia noirthearaigh soir’ - ‘If you searched the whole world as far east as Eastern India’ that appears in the Early Modern Irish saga Oidheadh Chloinne Uisneach, also answering the question how India was described in various later medieval and early modern Irish sources.
