- Middle Irish Old Irish
- Middle Irish, with Old Irish forms. David Greene suggests that the text may date back to the Old Irish period: “In their present form these stories [Aided Máelodráin and Orgguin trí mac Diarmata mic Cerbaill] show a confusion of earlier and later forms, and there are so many minor variations of wording that it would be hard to come to any conclusion as to the original text. But enough archaic forms are preserved […] to make it possible that the date of the original composition was within the Old Irish period.”(1)n. 1 David Greene, Fingal Rónáin and other stories (1955): 47.
