Narrative sections
The following table gives a parallel overview of the narrative sections found in all three recensions of the text. It is primarily based on J. P. Mallory's plot overview in Aspects of the Táin (1992),
n. 1 James P. Mallory, ‘Táin bó Cúailnge: an outline of the plot’ in Aspects of the Táin... (1992).
with some additions and minor alterations. Like there, the section titles are for the most part taken from the subheadings in Cecile O'Rahilly's edition of Recension I (O’Rahilly, C., Táin bó Cúailnge: Recension I (1976)), with significant variants from Recension II, edited in O’Rahilly, C., Táin bó Cúalnge: from the Book of Leinster (1967), being provided in the appropriate column. A title following an arrow (→) refers to a particular subsection which is contained in the last named section.

Line numbers follow those assigned to the texts in O’Rahilly, C., Táin bó Cúailnge: Recension I (1976) (Recension I), O’Rahilly, C., Táin bó Cúalnge: from the Book of Leinster (1967) (Recension II) and in Nettlau 1893, Nettlau 1894 and Thurneysen, R., “Táin bó Cúailghni nach H.2.17”, Zeitschrift für celtische Philologie 8 (1912) (Recension III). The symbol ‘x’ is used to indicate that there is no corresponding section in recension II or I; no equivalent sign has been used in the column for the third recension, as this text has been preserved only in fragmentary form.
