The author notes, "It may be that the words "near the Borowe " should have been read "on the Borowe." The Annals of Clonmacnoise have come down to us in an English translation only, a translation made in 1627. The original version written in Irish has not survived, so that we do not know with what exactitude the seventeenth century translator rendered the text into English."
