Epilogue to Anbthine mór ar muig Lir

A short prose narrative which in the manuscript (Laud Misc. 610) forms an epilogue to the Middle Irish poem beginning ‘Anbthine mór ar muig Lir’. It (falsely) attributes the poem (dúan) to Rumán mac Colmáin (d. c. 747), and goes on to relate a story of why the poet composed it. Two other quatrains are cited and ascribed to Rumán in the story.
