Ceanannus Mór

Ceanannus Mór (sē´ənăn´əs môr) or Kells, town (1991 pop. 2,185), Co. Meath, NE Republic of Ireland, on the Blackwater River. It is a market town and was once a royal residence for Irish kings. Computer cabinets are made there. Noteworthy are the relic of an ancient monastery founded in the 6th cent. by St. Columba, the round tower, and several ancient crosses. The Book of Kells, now one of the treasures of the Trinity College library in Dublin, is a beautifully illuminated manuscript of the Latin Gospels, with notes on local history, found in the ancient monastery and believed to have been written in the 8th cent. The manuscript is generally regarded as the finest example of Celtic illumination.

Citation styles gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
