Florence MacMoyer ( - 1713):
Informer and Teacher


Florence MacMoyer was born in Ballymoyer, County Armagh. He was a school master and his family were hereditary keepers of the Book of Armagh, a manuscript thought to date back to 807. It is said that he pawned the book for £5, a sum which took him to London to give evidence against Archbishop Oliver Plunkett. He returned to Ireland in 1683, his reputation totally discredited. In the nineteenth century, the Book of Armagh eventually came into the care of Bishop William Reeves, who donated it to the library of Trinity College, Dublin.
