s. xv – Compilation of the manuscript

Written, to a large extent at least, for Fínghin Mac Carthaigh Riabhach of Cairbre (Co. Cork) and his wife Caitlín, daughter of Thomas Fitzgerald, earl of Desmond. The mention of a couple (lánamhna) on ff. 42ra, 49v, 53rb and 59ra has been taken to refer to the same patrons, but Ó Cúiv has suggested that the first part of the manuscript may have been written for another married couple, perhaps Fínghin's parents.
